Things To Do In Colorado In July

Searching for things to do in Colorado in July with your kids? I did all the research so you don’t have to!

Summer in Colorado is full of outdoor adventures including fireworks, face painting and county fairs! Pack up the kids and get ready for a fun. There are so many kid friendly things to do in Colorado in July that you will be wishing July had an extra week.


July Farmer’s Markets

Farm fresh produce and summer go hand in hand. Most counties in Colorado offer at least one, if not multiple farmers markets throughout the summer. While Saturday is the most common day, there are actually farmer’s markets running Tuesday through Saturday up and down the front range. You can find a complete listing of Colorado Farmer’s Markets here. Many Farmer’s Markets offer more than for your kids to try than fruits and veggies including music, face painting, baked goods, and more!

When heading to the Farmer’s Market in July, expect to find a lot of fresh, vegetables including tomatoes, green beans, and beats. As far as seasonal fruits are concerned, farm fresh cherries, strawberries and blueberries should be available. The main star of Summer in our house are fresh peaches. Starting in July, you will find Colorado peaches at farmer’s markets, road side stands, and grocery stores. Fresh peaches are one of my favorite summer traditions- don’t miss out on it. If you find them freshly picked at the farmer’s market, buy at least a dozen, if not a case and let your family enjoy these sweet summer treats.


Drive-In Movie

July is the perfect month to head to the drive-in movie theater. Colorado is fortunate enough to have nine operating drive in movie theaters. They are sprinkled throughout the state, with two in the Denver area and one in Fort Collins. Pack some pillows and blankets and share the nostalgia of a drive-in movie with your kids this summer.


Front Range Things To Do In July With Kids

The Front Range has a ton of things for kids to do in the Summer. In addition to your annual visit to the Denver Zoo, Denver Aquarium, Water World, and Rockies Game; you will find festivals, fairs and more to explore with your kids this month. And for reference,as a Colorado Native, I consider ” Front Range” Colorado Springs to Fort Collins (basically, 1-2 hours either way, depending on traffic from Denver).


Things To Do In The Mountains In July With Kids

While many think of heading to the high country in the winter, the Rocky Mountains offer family fun year round. Whether you take a day trip or make an overnight trip of it, check out the following Rocky Mountain family events this month.

Western Slope Things To Do In July With Kids

The Western Slope offers many family activities during the summer. If have are on the Front Range and have not taken I-70 west of Vail to explore, you don’t know what you are missing! In my unofficial opinion, the Western Slope is basically everything west of Edwards, including Glenwood Springs, Grand Junction and Gunnison. The Western Slope is a beautiful breath of fresh air and open space.
