4 Fun and Affordable Events to Check Out This Next Month

There are a wide variety of events happening this next month, from cowboys to wild animals. Whether you’re looking for something to do with the kids or just a night out with friends, here’s a few ideas to help get you out of the house.

Symphony for Toddlers

Inside the Orchestra will be hosting their winter performance for Tiny Tots. If you have young ones, this may be a great way to introduce them to musical instruments. Designed specifically for children under six, seating is on the floor and the audience is truly surrounded by a 30 piece orchestra. The program is 45 minutes long and provides kids an opportunity to interact with the conductor and musicians. It’s a great opportunity to learn about the variety of instruments. There’s also dancers! The winter season runs on select dates in February and they suggest a price of $9.95 per attendee.

Release Your Inner Cowboy/Cowgirl

The Colorado Cowboy Poetry Gathering takes place every year in Golden, Colorado. This year’s event takes place January 21st-25th at the Table Mountain Inn. The cost depends on the events you want to attend. You can also take a couple of classes such as “cinch” making and learn how to play the harmonica.

Participate in the Annual MLK Marade

January 19th will mark the 30th year for the 5k Marade (march + parade). The formation begins at 10 a.m. and the Marade will start at 10:45 a.m. at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I Have a Dream Memorial in City Park. You can find a map of the routehere. Donations of old cell phones, non-perishable food and children’s books will be collected.  The phones will be refurbished and donated to battered woman shelters and food donated to local food banks.

Free Zoo Day

That’s right! You can take the whole family to the Denver Zoo for free on January 21stand 31st as well as February 1st and 18th. Maybe while you’re there you’ll catch a glimpse of the new baby lion cubs, Kalu and Kamara.
