3 things to do for free in Denver this week, June 17-20
Money: who needs it? Well, probably you. But this week, you won't have to spend any of it to get out of the house. Whether you want to see a tribute to Woodstock, Joss Whedon's Serenity, or an evening of live storytelling and dance, you can do it all without dropping any cash. Read further for our picks of three free events, and feel free to share more in the comments section. As always, the Westword calendar has listings all the events.
Spend your Tuesday night with the brilliant Joss Whedon. Or at least, with a movie written by him. The Denver Public Library's Fresh City Life will screen the Buffy-creator's epic Serenity, a sci-fi Western that was the follow-up to the one killer season of cult television show Firefly.
Sit back and listen to stories this evening from Wonderbound artistic director Garrett Ammon and author and City O' City/Watercourse mastermind Dan Landes tonight. The pair will regale audiences with true tales and a coinciding performance from Wonderbound dancers. In addition, you can look at art from Tom Varani, Michelle Christiance, and Andrea Pliner and purchase food and beverages from Bistro Colorado and local breweries.
For those who were born too late to experience the magic at the iconic 1969 music festival, the Westminster Promenade is recreating Woodstock tonight as part of its summer free concert series. Experience renditions of music like Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane, and The Who from the three days of peace and music.
