Denver Events in November

Thanksgiving is on the horizon and we all know what that means — time to confirm your travel arrangements and get your Colorado home ready for visitors. While this time of year is synonymous with the start of the holiday season, we know how important it is to protect the time you actually spend with the people you love most. If you typically find yourself with a laundry list of items that seem to take the fun out your holiday related festivities, we’ve taken on the task of highlighting some of the best Denver events for you and your family to enjoy. So, read on! 

Holiday Celebrations
The largest holiday lights display in Denver can be found at Union Station’s Grand Illumination. Featuring a vintage holiday performance by the Denver Dolls, holiday jingles by the Denver Bronze, and an appearance by Santa and Mrs. Clause, this iconic event returns to the Mile High City and offers fun for all ages! Another option for your family is the Blossoms of Light hosted by Denver Botanic Gardens. As the gardens signature event for over three decades, this annual holiday lights extravaganza transforms the York Street location into a twinkling winter wonderland and has become a holiday tradition for thousands of Front Range families.

Mile High United Way Turkey Trot
Running at altitude can be a lot more fun when it’s through beautiful places like Denver’s historic, tree-lined Washington Park. Featuring a post-race party stocked with live music, booths and a beer garden, the annual Thanksgiving tradition draws thousands of participants and is a great way to bond with your friends and family while giving back to the community. Whether you walk, run or volunteer for this four mile course, your registration fee will go toward supporting the Mile High United Way; a non profit organization geared at helping improve the lives of children, families, and individuals in our community. 

The holidays are a great time to make your family and friends a priority and though we are grateful year-round, this month also gives us the chance to support our community and exercise neighborly gratitude. From festive celebrations to volunteer opportunities, there is no shortage of events to ring in the season. Whether you are planning an extended vacation, or hosting Turkey Day at your Denver home, with a bit of planning you can easily make this thanksgiving one to remember for you and your loved ones!
