Waiting for the sun...and the crowds.

Head for the hills! It's not too late to catch Easter Sunrise Service at Red Rocks — or at least to enjoy the park. Keep reading for three free events in and around Denver today:

Earthmade at Stanley
Sunday, April 17, noon to 5 p.m.
The Hangar at Stanley, 2501 Dallas Street, Aurora

Get in the mood for Earth Day when Earthmade, a sixty-vendor market with a theme of sustainability, will set up in the Hangar at Stanley Marketplace. Peruse fun houseplants, rocks and fossils, holistic health products, and vegan and vegetarian eats; listen to folks from eco-friendly organizations. General admission is free; find info and RSVP here.

Judaism Your Way Virtual Passover Seders
Passover Family Seder: Sunday, April 17, 4 to 5 p.m.

Judaism Your Way makes it easy to join in with a group for a traditional Passover seder without leaving your living room. It even gives you a choice between a more adult version of the annual reading of the Haggadah and an interactive, multi-generational family seder with songs and stories. The food? You’re not off the hook for supplying that! But the seders are free, and all you have to do to tune in is RSVP in advance here for access to Zoom instructions.
