Summer Events at Aspen GroveMay 20, 2021 | by AspenGrove | Aspen Grove, Community, Family-Fun, Littleton Colorado
As an outdoor shopping center, easily accessible on Santa Fe, and home to over 40 shops and restaurants, Aspen Grove is also the perfect location for summer events. Whether you love our long-standing traditions or are ready for something new, we have a great line up in 2021. Our events include opportunities for everyone to enjoy – a date night for two, family fun, gathering for girlfriends, or a day out with the pup. Step outside for a bit of the Colorado lifestyle and share your talent, relax in a beer garden, and make memories. At Aspen Grove you can enjoy the festival life, right in your backyard and still spend time strolling for treasures, checking off your shopping list, or stopping for a bite to eat. Make it a day, at Aspen Grove.
A PARIS STREET MARKET
A long-time favorite, A Paris Street Market brings over 100 vendors from across the region to our open-air shopping center. Offering vintage, antique, and artisan wares, bring your girlfriends and find the perfect décor for that little corner in your house or a fabulous frock for your next date night. Come early for great deals or extend your stay with a mid-shopping snack at one of our restaurants.
Metro Denver Farmers’ Market is the oldest farmers’ market in the Denver area. Many of our farmers are from generations of Colorado farming families, locally grown in all ways! Our aim is to bring the freshest, local produce directly to you. Perk up your next meal with a juicy melon, tasty olive oil, local honey, or fresh bakery products.
Have a painting talent or just like to dabble? Come spend the day painting in the fresh air at Aspen Grove. Last year we spread 30 artists around our property, as they painted the foliage and ambience. Our goal this year is to have even more! For adults, simply register with Rox Arts Gallery to make it official, then check in at 9AM on the day of the event (all details will be emailed once registered), and you will have a chance to win cash prizes! Kids can also participate this year. Kids under 14 can register with Red Hen Createry to pick up a kit of everything they will need. The day of the event, find a great spot and make your magic – every kid wins a prize! The Arapahoe Philharmonic woodwind group will create some ambient music from 10am-noon near Avalon DaySpa. At noon, all paintings will be collected near Rox Arts Gallery for judging and display. Prizes will be announced at 2pm near Qdoba! Shoppers are invited to observe the artists in action and peruse the completed works.
Looking for fun things to do with your pup? As a dog-friendly shopping center, we are throwing a party for all our furry friends! Join us for a fur-friendly mini-expo of dog focused vendors, plus canine agility demos, live music, and some doggone fun benefiting the Humane Society of the South Platte Valley! Pups and their humans are invited to relax at the Breckenridge Brewery Beer Garden with hard lemonade, seltzers, and beer while listening to live music from the JV3. Enter to win fabulous prizes from our collection of dog-friendly vendors or snuggle up and take selfies with your furry friend. If you are a little more committed, help your dog cool down and clean up with an onsite mobile dog wash or take home a new friend from the Humane Society of the South Platte Valley (HSSPV). We will also be kicking off our 2021 Dog-Friendly Mascot search, so come photo ready!
Thursdays in August from 6-8pm
Swing on over to Aspen Grove for a Thursday night date night in August. Each Thursday we will host a live band for dancing in the street between Ted’s Montana Grill and Panera Bread. Don’t know how to swing? Instructors from Swingin’ Denver will host lessons! Grab a quick meal on a patio and just watch or dive right in and swing!
Aspen Grove continues to be a destination for our community. With our mix of national and local shops, great restaurants, and outdoor atmosphere we welcome you to stop in for that one item on your list or to spend the day. Watch our website for additional events coming in the fall and holidays!
