This is Labor Day weekend, which means there are several days of fun events ahead — many of them free. Our top-ten picks include stuff for skaters, art for sludge stoners, swag for sneaker heads and something for everyone in between. For even more entertainment options, visit the Westword calendar.

Taste of Colorado 
Civic Center Park
Friday through Monday, free

Summer's going out, but only after the bang of Taste of Colorado. Food is ostensibly the focus of this event, but there's also live music from dudes like Boyz II Men, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and many more. And booze, of course. Bring the sunscreen, and check out the complete schedule here. The Taste is open from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. today, 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. tomorrow and Sunday, and 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday.

DTL Concert Series & Bazaar
Denver Tool Library
6 p.m. Friday, free

It's a wrap on the DTL summer concert series. It's been quite a party — with music, art, food and booze — and it's getting a proper sendoff. Gun Street GhostPrettyMouth and Granny Tweed will bring the jams, while HippiemanMichael Karlik and Zac Maas bring the comedy. Come hungry — food trucks will be on hand.

Hesh Magic: Cosmic Offerings From The Witch, The Wizard, and The Wolf
Lowbrow Denver
7 p.m. Friday, free
