We love summer in the Mile High City for the warm days and cool nights, plus the menagerie of musical opportunities available that appeal to every taste and budget. From free concert series in parks to the up-and-coming acts seen in musical showcases, Denver rocks—and sways—in summer! Before you head out to hear the tunes, a Denver optometrist at Vision Care Specialists can help make sure your vision is crystal clear so you won’t miss a beat.
Clyfford Still Museum Summer Concerts
One of our favorite ways to spend a summer evening is to lounge on a blanket with a picnic while jammin’ to the tunes of a concert—for free. The Clyfford Still Museum and Swallow Hill Music Association have joined forces to give Denverites two evenings of fun. Check out Jamye Stone on July 11 and Fierce Bad Rabbit on August 1. Concerts start at 5:30 p.m.
City Park Jazz
Jazz, blues and salsa lovers converge on Denver’s City Park each Sunday night in June and July from 6-8 p.m. to be part of the park’s 130-year tradition of musical celebrations. Concerts happen rain or shine!
Denver Botanic Gardens Summer Concert Series
Get your tickets early or you’ll miss out on Denver Botanic Gardens’ popular summer concert series set amid the blooming and fragrant gardens. Natalie Cole and Sheryl Crow are just a couple examples of the top-notch talent that will be featured this summer.
Westword Music Showcase
Bigger and better than ever, the Westword Music Showcase fills 12 stages in Denver’s Golden Triangle District for the 20th annual event on June 21 featuring 150 local acts plus some hot national acts including world-famous DJ Diplo.

This is Denver’s very own version of Austin’s South By Southwest!

You never know, you just might see a performer here that may make it big tomorrow!
