It's time to get ready for summer with some laid-back activities!
Enjoy live music, farmer’s markets, beer tasting, movie nights, and more all in Aurora, CO.
Plan ahead. Buy tickets, sign-up online, or do a little research before attending these events and activities.
Enjoy a glass of wine or a pint of beer while strolling through Southlands Main Street. Ten (10) 1 oz. glasses of wine are included with each ticket, as well as a complimentary commemorative glass. Invite a friend to join you on a stroll through the freshly restored town Square, where you can shop at one of the numerous independent or big-box stores. Tickets are $15 in advance and $25 on the day of the event - unless they sell out!
Farmer's Markets are great places to get fresh baked goods and local produce. After work, this is the ideal place to stop by and get what you need for those weekend get-togethers and cookouts. After that, relax with a refreshing beverage and further shopping at all of Stanley's fantastic stores.

If your town will have a 5k fun run this spring or summer, why not train for it and participate?

Here are some upcoming 5Ks within 50 miles of Aurora.
You don't need to spend a lot of money on food or specific "picnic" items; simply grab some snacks from the cupboard and an old blanket and head to a favorite park in Aurora with friends to enjoy nature.
