Red Rocks- More Than Just A Concert Venue
June 12, 2017
Everyone knows beautiful Red Rocks Amphitheater for its awesome concerts, but do you know about the other events going on there? From hiking to movies, here is the breakdown if you want to visit and get outside, but attending a concert isn't your thing-
Film On The Rocks
Now in its 18th season, Film on the Rocks is a collaborative production of the Denver Film Society and Denver Arts & Venues and was created to provide an affordable opportunity for the community to enjoy films and live entertainment at Red Rocks Amphitheater. FOTR includes 9 events preceded by live music and a live comedian, courtesy of Comedy Works. The films range from classics like Dirty Dancing to new releases like the newest Star Wars and even child friendly movies like The Lego Movie. Dressing up to the theme of the movie is encouraged!
Tickets start at as little as $15. Don't forget to check out prohbitied items (no camping chairs , sadly) and the schedule here:
Fitness On The Rocks-
Yoga On The Rocks,- Brought to you by Arts & Venues and partnering with The River Power Vinyasa Yoga and CorePower Yoga. YOTR is probably the most popular and tickets sell out fast! You can buy a season pass, 4-pack, or 1 day pass (season pass holders get free admission to Barre On The Rocks). Don't forget your yoga mat and water bottle because it gets hot!
Barre On The Rocks- BOTR is new to the 2017 season and is only held one day, Saturday, July 15th. If you're a Yoga On The Rocks season pass holder, you receive free admission. Tickets are $14+taxes/fees.
Fitness On The Rocks- Like Barre, Fitness is only held one day of the season, Saturday July 22nd, but lasts 4+ hours! What is cool about Fitness is that you can attend one workout or all four and there are different regimes going on in different areas including the Amphitheater, Top Plaza, Bottom Plaza, and Festival Lot- so there is something for everyone of all fitness levels! Tickets range from $35-$55.
Hiking the Park-
Did you know the Park is open to visitors free of charge? With 738 acres and numerous trails, Red Rocks is a quick outdoor getaway from Denver. Just make sure to check out the Amphitheater's changing hours depending on concerts or other events, otherwise the Amphitheater is open to jog or walk the stairs. Leashed dogs are welcome!
Biking the Park-
The Red Rocks Trail runs through the east side of the park and is a multi-use trail for hiking, horseback riding and mountain biking. There is a connecting trail from the Lower North Parking Lot to Red Rocks Trail. The trail splits with one segment going north to connect to Jefferson County’s Matthews-Winters park and the other segment goes east to connect to the Dakota Ridge Trail. The Red Rocks Trail continues on to Matthews-Winters, creating a dramatic 6-mile loop. The trail connecting to Red Rocks Trail and Red Rocks Trail to Matthews Winters, are the only trails in the park that bicycles are permitted on.
