We blinked and it’s November!
To help you get the most out of this month, we came up with 11 things to do in Denver that are sure to make you feel thankful, grateful, #blessed. Whether you’re looking for some great events, shows and/or seasonal fun – our list has you covered.
1. DENVER FILM FEST
Kicking off our list is the 45th Annual Denver Film Festival.
Running through November 13, it’s an absolute must for all the film junkies out there. With exclusive screenings, events, entertainment and more, taking place throughout the city it’s a taste of Tinseltown right in our own back yard. Be sure to visit their site for program sections, passes/packs, FAQs and more.
2. CAT FEST COLORADO
Do we have any cat lovers in the house?
Then Cat Fest Colorado is just the place for you (and our Editor). Taking place at the National Western Expo Hall on November 13th – it’s the ultimate celebration of ALL things cats! Tickets include meet-and-greets with some friendly felines, costume contests, art show, cat crafts, tarot readings AND more importantly adoptable cats.
3. WHISKEY + DOUGHNUTS
Rounding out our list of events is the pairing we didn’t know we needed, Whiskey + Doughnuts. The 9th annual Whiskey Throwdown & Doughnut Showdown is a great way to enjoy some of Colorado’s best distilleries and doughnut bakeries. This year’s event is exceptionally unique as you’ll also get access to the Annual Barrel Aged Beer & Whiskey Festival.
Psst… this event has historically sold out every year, get your tickets before they’re all gone!
Kicking off our list of shows this month is Foals at Mission Ballroom on November 7th.
While we were fortunate enough to catch them the last time they were in town – we’re incredibly excited to check out the Denver leg of their Life is Yours tour. Tickets are still available and it’s sure to be a solid good show!
Get on your dancing shoes!
Deadmau5 makes his return to Red Rocks on November 4th and 5th – which is sure to keep you moving and grooving into the weekend. With some incredible heavy-hitters lined up as support for both shows, it’s a great way to catch one of the last shows to close out the Red Rocks season.
6. WINNIE THE POOH
Transitioning into some family fun – Winnie the Pooh, Christopher Robin and their best pals are stopping by the Newman Center for the Performing Arts (November 11-13) and bringing the Hundred Acre Woods with them. Be sure to grab tickets for you and the whole family to see Pooh and friends.
7. CHAMPAGNE CASCADE
Champagne and candy canes!
With the holidays right around the corner, there’s no better way to celebrate the season than with a visit to The Brown Palace Hotel & Spa’s 34th Annual Champagne Cascade. This beloved Denver holiday event is back on November 13th and quite the sight to see. Complete with a jaw dropping two-story 5,000+ glass Champagne tower, special VIP guests, unbelievable décor, and more; this is one event you’ll remember for holidays to come.
Psst… did we mention proceeds go to benefit Make-A-Wish Colorado.
