We're going to be in Colorado Springs and Denver from June 1 - 8. What's going on?

Bonus points for Portuguese related events.
Also looking for some good music/concerts.

Westword is a good source of Denver event listings.

These are specific to Denver, and all are free:

The Chalk Art Festival will take place on the 1st and 2nd--I like going towards the end of the event on the 2nd so that I see mostly-completed work.

Jazz in the Park kicks off on the 2nd.

The 7th is the First Friday Art Walk in the Santa Fe art district.

My music picks...

Red Rocks (you really want to go here if at all possible)
Moe (jam band hippy paradise)
Billie Eilish
Michael Franti (kills in this venue)

Emily Saliers (of the Indigo Girls)
Denver jazz icon Freddy Rodriguez, Sr. at the landmark club El Chapultepec.
The Dead Milkmen
The Crystal Method

Little Feat (small house, this should kill)
Talib Kweli

COS (not really a music town, so a rare decent show)
But here's a previously, for other local stuff. Crap website, but this is here if yer into mil history.

If shows are sold out, try stubhub, axs, flashseats, THEN Craigslist.

Super biased because I am personally connected, but Denver Pop Culture Con is happening June 1st & 2nd (and May 31st!).

There's a Metafilter meetup on 6/5! You should totally come! We're currently looking at locations to meet in downtown Denver.
