MAY IS THE MONTH TO PLAY!
May is a month of fun holidays, such as May Day, Mother’s Day, and everyone’s favorite three-day weekend, Memorial Day. But in addition to these celebrations, Reunion residents can partake in a lot of other activities during this festive month.
Some things Reunion residents can look forward to this month are the Reunion community youth and adult programs. But if you’re looking for fun things to do outside of the neighborhood, we’ve compiled a list of cool events around town:
Free Music Class for Kids

Friday, May 26, 10 am – 1 pm
This mini bike course is for children ages 9-17 and teaches bike laws and bike safety. Participants will ride their bike through a mini course and receive free safety gear. No registration necessary; just show up at Kearney Middle School.

The Denver Mini Derby

The Big Wonderful
May 5 – May 7
Looking for some hipster vibes? This quarterly weekend festival is Denver’s original urban fest that celebrates Colorado’s eclectic culture to the fullest. The Big Wonderful turns otherwise vacant lots into a thriving arts and small business community, incorporating a huge bazaar that features Denver’s best eats, drinks, and pop-up retail.
Hopefully this will give you a solid starting place to plan your month of fun!
