Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice

Soak up the fresh, splendid autumn air with these four fall activities

It's officially fall in Colorado and we've found 4 events to add a little spice to your autumn plans, with whiskey tastings to warm you up and a pumpkin festival to get you in the spirit of Halloween. 

The WhiskyX

Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum

Warm up this October with 60 of the world’s top whiskeys, live music and some of the best food trucks in Denver. The WhiskyX will also feature performers like St. Paul & The Broken Bones—a high voltage Birmingham, Alabama band with the dynamic Paul Janeway on lead vocals. Held at a one-of-a-kind venue, The WhiskyX will fill the night with dazzling entertainment.

Glow at the Gardens

October 21 – 25, 2019
Denver Botanic Gardens 

Ignite your spooky senses at the Glow at the Gardens, with luminaria-lined pathways, hundreds of carved pumpkins and light displays illuminated in the spirit of Halloween. Stand beside larger-than-life sculptures made out of hand-carved pumpkins, enjoy scavenger hunts, fire and LED light performances, trick-or-treating and more. 

Claude Monet: The Truth of Nature

Opens October 21, 2019
Denver Art Museum

Claude Monet, Waterlilies and Japanese Bridge, 1899.

A calming sense of nostalgia seems to arrive with Autumn—leaves begin to change, cool air tickles your nose and cinnamon spice warms your soul. Immerse yourself in art’s own zest of nostalgia with the Claude Monet exhibition at the Denver Art Museum. One of the most prolific French impressionists of our history, Monet is known for capturing changing seasons and producing sentimental images of water, light and color. Absorb nature’s true nostalgic beauty this October and gaze upon Monet’s serene and wistful artwork.

Disney in Concert: Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas

November 1 – 2, 2019
Boettcher Concert Hall

Brandon Marshall

The Nightmare Before Christmas is coming to the big screen this fall and the Colorado Symphony is orchestrating Tim Burton’s ghostly score alongside the film. As Jack the Pumpkin King would say, "What’s this?" The brilliant dialogue, singing and effects will also be performed live. Don’t forget to wear your favorite costume while celebrating Halloween through the weekend of November 1.
