Signature Events

There’s never been a more exciting time to be in Castle Rock, and the community’s crescendo is building. The Town is ramping up its first full year of community festivals, concerts and activities, including programming at the new Amphitheater at Philip S. Miller Park.

There are 20 events slated for 2016, so mark your calendars.

Here is a taste of what we have planned:

  • Downtown After 5 - come relax Downtown as select Fridays come alive from 5 to 8 p.m. Enjoy live music, craft beer, cocktails and themed food trucks. Or, checkout work by local artisans, pick up specialty gifts, enjoy plein air painting, and more. Join us Downtown on May 6, June 3, July 8, Aug. 5 and Sept. 16.
2016 Signature Event Series
