Is it March already? As a Coloradan, you probably think of March as the month where you only ski on weekdays because of the spring break crowds. If you’re a basketball fan, you’re probably getting your March Madness bracket ready. But March is also Women’s History Month. We highly recommend taking a day to visit the Colorado Women’s History Center at the Byers-Evans House Museum. There, you’ll learn about the historical accomplishments of several badass Rocky Mountain women.
It helps to leave the house every now and then if you’re looking to make a little history of your own, so we’ve compiled a few fun and educational events to hit around town this month. Between adventures, don’t forget to stop into the Reunion Coffee House every now and then and say hello to your neighbors. You never know, they may be in the middle of making some pretty cool history themselves!
INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY
Thursday, March 7, 5:30-7pm, Molly Brown House Museum

DENVER AUTO SHOW
March 27-31, Colorado Convention Center
See the newest model year imports and domestic vehicles — cars, vans, crossovers, hybrids, light trucks, and SUVs — that suit every budget and lifestyle. You’ll also be treated to sneak peeks of selected intros and concepts plus the latest in tricked-out vehicles. Learn more.
GEORGIA O’KEEFFE AND CONTEMPORARY PAINTING
Through May 26, Museum of Contemporary Art Denver
This exhibit brings together a select group of artists whose work resonates with that of Georgia O’Keeffe. From her formal innovations, to her ambitious transcribing of her ideas and emotions, to her distinctive approach to abstraction, O’Keeffe’s legacy has influenced and affected the work of several generations of painters.

PATRICK’S DAY PARADE
Saturday, March 16, 9:30 am, LoDo

Attendees young and old will enjoy a festive collection of equestrians, Irish dancers, traditional bagpipers, civic clubs, and local cultural groups.

Sunday, March 10, Downtown Aquarium
Experience the awe and wonder of Denver’s own aquarium in a calm and sensory-friendly environment. This special morning event starts early at 8:30am with employees turning up the lights and turning down the ambient sounds in the exhibits to be more sensitive to guests.
