Festivals and Fairs in Aurora

Aurora and the surrounding areas host enough fairs and festivals throughout the year that it’s almost guaranteed at least one will be going on during your stay. In February, the Denver Zoo hosts Prairie Dog Day (a local twist on Ground Hog Day), celebrating with prairie dogs, fun, entertainment and some wildlife learning. You can always find a place to unwind after your busy and exciting day, before retiring to your Aurora hotel.

There’s a spring bazaar in March, the Mayor’s Easter Eggstravaganza in April and an open house flea market, the Ballpark Market, every second Saturday from April to October. Every year in July, Colorado’s largest outdoor festival hits Aurora’s Bicentennial Park, and it’s all for kids. Giant mazes, jugglers, magicians and life-size board games are just part of the fun and festivities. There’s no end to the entertainment, so book your travel to Aurora now!

Arts and Entertainment

For quality performance in smaller, intimate settings, the Aurora Fox Arts Center is a great place to see, featuring new plays on a regular basis. The Aurora History Museum brings a fresh taste to history, with unique pop sci-fi, Harley Davidson and other exhibits.

For beautiful orchestra music, the Aurora Symphony Orchestra provides affordable entertainment, as well as a place for local musicians to perform. A gymnastics institute, brass band and shadow theatre company top off this delightful set of artistic and entertaining places. Then after a great day of fun and adventure you can relax in the luxury of an Aurora hotel.
