Date ideas in Denver by LuvByrd
Looking for a unique place to go on a LuvByrd date this summer in Denver? If you enjoy being outdoors, and you love live music, attending a free outdoor concert is a great date idea! An outdoor concert is a great venue to sit back, relax and enjoy a live band. Because many free concerts in the Denver area take place in a park or a large outdoor location, attendees often bring along a blanket and a picnic to enjoy during the concert. (Some venues allow alcohol, and others do not - so make sure to check the park rules ahead of time before bringing a bottle of wine or other type of alcoholic drink). Here are some of the most popular free outdoor concerts that are happening this summer in and around the Denver area. Be aware that some concert locations have been hosting free, live music for many years, and are extremely popular. Therefore, arrive as early as you can to ensure a good spot. Concerts at theCrescent - The Goldsmith Metropolitan District presents free concerts every summer at the Crescent Amphitheatre located at the intersection of DTC Boulevard and Belleview Ave. in Greenwood Village, Colorado. Concerts are on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm. Some of the bands that will be featured during the 2015 summer season include: The Montones, Soul X, 6 Million Dollar Band, Forever in Blue Jeans, Tunisia, and more! The park opens at 5 pm, and it's recommended that concert-goers arrive early because the venue can get very crowded. Picnic dinners are welcome, but pets/dogs are not. City Park Jazz - If you and your date love the outdoors, you enjoy jazz music, and you are looking for a fun location for a date, consider attending a City Park Jazz concert. Located in City Park - near the heart of Downtown Denver at 17th Avenue and Colorado Boulevard, this venue is perfect for a fun, outdoor date. All visitors are welcome to bring a blanket, chairs and a picnic. City Park has been hosting free concerts every summer for the past 29 years, and the 2015 concert series begins on June 7. Musicians featured are local and reflect the musical and cultural diversity of the great city of Denver, Colorado! Civic Center Park - 4th of July - The 4th of July is a great day to partake in an outdoor celebration!

Since parking can be a problem at any free outdoor event, finding alternative methods of transportation to the concert is always recommended. Many people choose to walk, jog or ride their bike to the abovementioned concert locations. Free outdoor concerts are a great way to enjoy a nice evening outdoors in Colorado. You and your LuvByrd date should have a fantastic experience!
