Denver outdoor concert

Denver’s free outdoor summer concerts 2022

posted by:

What would summer be without some outdoor concerts? We recommend you come early, bring your own chairs/blanket and a great picnic to enjoy some of the best bands around town for FREE at area parks all summer long! Some of the best bands across Denver play and don’t cost you anything. That’s one way to save money in this economy this summer and have a great family experience.

If you want to be super-efficient, check out products like Mac Sports Foldable Chaise Lounge Chair with Integrated Wagon Pull Cart Combo.  Haul your picnic and beverages with the wagon that then converts to your very own chair. The wheels are heavy and can cross any terrain.
