Info About Denver

Once a lonely mining town, today Denver is known for its proud microbreweries and colorful pioneer history. A jumping-off point for stunning scenery and world-class ski resorts, the Mile High City also boasts countless events, including  rip-roaring sports, electrifying concerts, and intriguing theater. From basketball games to ballet to comedy shows, Denver has tickets for everyone—and everything.

Sports

Denver draws sports fans from across the country to watch its successful and much-loved teams. The Broncos are winners of 8 AFC championships and 3 Super Bowls, the most recent win coming in Super Bowl 50 under the expert leadership of Peyton Manning. Join the passionate ranks of blue-and-orange-clad fans at the Broncos Stadium At Mile High. Head to the Pepsi Center to watch the Denver Nuggets rack up hoops against rival teams like the Los Angeles Lakers. The Nuggets have earned 7 NBA Division titles and advanced to the NBA playoffs 24 times, inspiring a base of loyal fans. When the Nuggets aren’t playing basketball, the Pepsi Center hosts the Colorado Avalanche and the Colorado Mammoth, the city’s professional hockey and lacrosse teams. Catch a Colorado Rockies baseball game at Coors Field, and then explore historic LoDo neighborhood restaurant scene. (Hint: Rocky Mountain oysters are not oysters.)

Denver also loves its college teams.  Wear some black and gold and head to Boulder for a Colorado Buffaloes football game. Be sure to arrive at Folsom Field pre-game to see Boulder’s buffalo mascot, Ralphie (she’s a girl), charge down the field. Or cheer on CU Boulder’s highly ranked and dynamic Division I women’s soccer team at Prentup Field.

Concerts

Home to musicians like the Lumineers, DeVotchKa, and The Fray, and the location of Led Zeppelin and Queen’s American debuts, Denver has a thriving musical scene. When the Pepsi Center isn’t hosting a sporting event, it features musicians like Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake, and the Foo Fighters. For an exhilarating outdoor experience, watch musicians like Imagine Dragons or Ray LaMontagne and Neko Case at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, in nearby Morrison. This venue’s huge red rock formations surround the outdoor amphitheater, offering concert-goers a stunning visual and acoustic display.

For a more classical experience, consider the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, whose programs often blend classical and pop themes with movie soundtrack concerts like Jaws and Harry Potter. They play in Boettcher Concert Hall, a symphony hall in-the-round with curved walls that promote better acoustics.  

Theater & Comedy

Denver also offers a broad swath of events for theater and comedy lovers. The Denver Performing Arts Center is a versatile performance complex with 10 separate concert and theater venues, so you have lots of options for entertainment. The Buell Theatre, originally a sports arena, is the largest of them. Its spacious and elegant design makes it an ideal spot to watch Broadway musicals like Wicked or Dear Evan Hansen. You can also book your tickets for the Colorado Ballet, which performs at the elegant and historic Ellie Caulkins Opera House. The opera house also showcases musicals like The Book of Mormon and award-winning comedians like Bill Burr.
