Music From Where the Sidewalk Ends

Free Summer Concert Series

This summer, the History Colorado Center hosts free outdoor concerts every Thursday evening in July on the south side porch area as part of its Building Denver initiative. The series explores different types of genres in Denver’s music scene. Music spanning several traditions from Denver’s most beloved and historic neighborhoods will entertain guests, and drinks will be available for purchase.

During the concerts, the museum also will be open for extended hours. The museum will be free from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., and the free concert will begin at 7 p.m. At 6 p.m., guests can enjoy happy hour specials in the Café.

Visitors are invited to explore the museum where they can explore exhibitions tied to the Building Denver initiative, including Building Denver: Visions of the Capital City, Building Denver: Where Corners Meet, Five Points Plus: Neighborhood Memory Project, and the Brick and Soul photography exhibition.
