The Holderness Family has once again captured this mama’s feeling with their latest parody. For the Seiffertt Family, May will be chock full of field days, band and orchestra concerts, conferences, and more. If your May isn’t quite so full, Denver has numerous festivities to keep you busy and entertained.
May 5 & 6
Civil Central Park
Time to brush up on your taco eating skills! Kick off a weekend celebration with a parade commemorating freedom and culture. The community joins together with vendors, musicians, and contests to support NEWSED’s development for West Denver residents.

Kids under 5: FREE
Purchase Taste Tickets for Samples: $10/dozen
I consider chocolate a stress reliever, and therefore therapy, which negates any troublesome calories. Treat your sweet mum to chocolatey goodness – or just go have a bite for yourself. Special tastings like wine-chocolate pairings might cost a bit extra, but we all know that chocolate and wine are like the mom’s version of peanut butter and jelly. Try a Chocolate Dipped Whaaaat? Or join Name That Chocolate. The event runs Friday and Saturday, so you can still give mom what she really wants most on Sunday: a chance to sleep in. (My kiddos, take note.)
Through May 19
Denver Art Museum
While many dating profiles feature Denver singles with their beautiful dogs, my sister has pictures with her ball python and geckos. I might suggest she go to The Stampede exhibition at DAM. This exhibit gives viewers a chance to try their hand at their own animal art and gain a better insight into how certain pieces were made. Everyone — single or not — can appreciate the artistic value of our animal friends.
May 26 & 27
The Denver Art Festival is celebrating their 20th year! Not only can you visit a diverse selection of artists, but you can tap your toes to live music as you dance your way to the kids art zone or shimmy to the wine and beer garden. The festival is a wonderful way to end an eventful month and relax a bit before the summer swings into full gear.
