This is the first day of summer, and weeks of fun stretch ahead. But you'll need to be organized if you want to catch all the great events in Denver and beyond. For starters, this is Go Skate Week, so you'll want to study the Colorado Skateboarding Facebook page for the schedule, and visit the Westword calendar for more ways to enjoy your week. Our three favorite free events follow:

Make Music Denver Concert
Curtis Park
12:30 p.m. Tuesday, free

Take the afternoon off and learn some new skills — or just enjoy local music. From 12:30 p.m. well into the night, Swallow Hill will present bands and workshops of all kinds in Curtis Park during Make Music Denver. You can try your hand at playing the ukulele or drumming,  and enjoy performances by groups like Maya BennettColor, ATOMGA and many more. There will be some satellite locations making music around the city, so be sure to check out the Make Music Denver schedule.

Bike to Work Day
Denver Metro Area
6:30 a.m. Wednesday, free

Celebrate environmentally friendly transportation with a free pancake breakfast at Skyline Park, free Cliff Bars and patch kits at Civic Center Park, or a party at KEPHART. Hundreds of places are participating in Bike to Work Day, so look at the official website to find out where you can pick up some swag — or just plan to ride your bike to work and feel good about what you're doing to improve the environment and traffic congestion.

Denver Botanic Gardens Free Day
Denver Botanic Gardens
9 a.m. Thursday, free

Entertain yourself by taking a few hours to walk, stop and smell the roses at the stunning Denver Botanic Gardens. This urban oasis features 24 acres full of trees, cactus, flowers and ponds. Many of the gardens feature plants that do not require a lot of water — but make sure you bring some for yourself, since the sun will be out with a vengeance.
