Join us for the 2nd Annual Arvada Days where we invite you to take a walk back in time to those earliest days of Arvada. Arvada has a long history in the Denver metro area and was a key community to our State’s gold mining history, earlier farming communities and helping to make Colorado the prosperous state that it is today! We’ll step back in time to the mid-1800s (1850-1900) and celebrate the rich history that Arvada holds while also sharing those activities of the era and helping our community learn first-hand what it was like to live in Arvada during the “golden days.”
Activities during the day:
* Gem hunting
* Cow patty toss
* Live music
* Community Booths
* Food Booths
* Learn to rope a calf!
Parking: Yes, at the park
Event producer(s): Arvada Festivals Commission and Hyland Hills Park and Recreation District
