Denver is an excellent place to live all year round, but our city is especially fun and festive during the holiday season. If you’d like to celebrate winter without traveling too far, Denver offers a great selection of seasonal entertainment. There’s an event for everyone here, and we share a few of our favorite options below.
Blossoms of Light at Denver Botanic Gardens
For many, holiday light displays are a quintessential part of winter. Denver Botanic Gardens has hosted an annual light show for more than three decades, and its most recent exhibition, Blossoms of Light, is dazzling. Blossoms of Light is open until January 1, 2019 at the York Street location, and tickets are available online. While you explore the grounds and admire the thousands of twinkling LED lights, grab a holiday treat or warm beverage at the vendor areas. Be sure to check the schedule before purchasing tickets, as carolers will be onsite on select days of the week.
Stop By Santa on the Square
Looking for a festive event that’s perfect for all ages? You’ll love Santa on the Square. Located in historic Larimer Square, this holiday celebration is upbeat and offers unbeatable shopping opportunities each weekend, starting from November 23 through December 24. If you’re ready to get a head start on shopping for loved ones, browse the boutiques located in Larimer Square and find gifts for everyone on your list. In addition to Denver’s best shopping options, attendees will have the chance to enjoy caroling performances, carriage rides, and a complimentary visit with Santa. If you’re coming from southeast Denver, the Light Rail offers convenient transportation to Larimer Square. Simply hop on at the Belleview Station stop and head northbound to Larimer Square.

Downtown Ice Rink
The downtown Denver ice rink at Skyline Park is one of our city’s most popular winter destinations. It’s free to skate, and rentals are available if you don’t have your own pair of ice skates. All ages are welcome to participate, and special events like Friday Night DJs are happening throughout the season. The rink’s hours change between holidays, so take a look at the schedule to find a date that suits your needs.
Comedy Works’ Holiday Special
Feeling stressed from holiday planning? Don’t miss the chance to leave your worries behind with Mitch Fatel’s Naughty and Nice Holiday Showcase. This event will feature several of Comedy Works’ top headliners, and six comedians will battle it out to win the title of best performance by a panel of three judges. The holiday showcase is sure to put comics to the test, as they’ll each perform two radically different sets: one G-rated performance, and one X-rated. Shows are available in Denver and Greenwood Village, so head over to this site to purchase tickets.
There’s always something exciting going on in Denver, and the holiday season is a particularly festive time of year. If you’re looking for a gorgeous condo community to call home that’s close to city-wide transportation, The Flats at VillaRosso is the perfect fit. Our new community is conveniently located in southeast Denver, and the Light Rail is steps away. If you’d like to indulge in excellent shopping and dining, you don’t have to travel far: the shops at Belleview Station are just around the corner.
