Denver in Lights
Updated: Jul 21
Denver in December is a sight to behold! With Christmas just around the corner, Denver has transformed into a festive place for people of all faiths and walks of life. There’s nothing quite like an evening stroll under twinkling holidays lights to celebrate the season and Denver will have plenty of them. So come out with your friends and family to some of the following events in the mile high city.
The Denver Theatre District's ongoing, year-round projection mapping installation will be projected on the Arapahoe Street side of the Daniels & Fisher Tower every Thursday through Saturday evening. Night Lights Denver will include rotating content, designed by artists and the community, featuring a wide range of art.
Zoo Lights will span 70 acres of Denver Zoo's campus with nightly entertainment, animal encounters, Santa meet-and-greets and, of course, illuminated animal sculptures that swing through trees, jump across lawns, hide in bushes and appear in places where they’re least expected.
Denver Botanic Gardens is proud to host Blossoms of Light, an annual family-friendly event that has become a tradition for people across Colorado. Come interact with incredible light displays — a large field of sound-reactive, animated LED lights — plus sip warm drinks and nibble on tasty treats as you stroll.

It's all aboard a comfortable, heated bus as we drive through some of the Denver area's most beautiful neighborhoods. Your host will delight and entertain you with stories of Denver's holiday lore.
