Dia de los Muertos, Halloween, pumpkin beers for this weekend in Denver


Thursday-Monday. There’s nothing like the glow of 7,000 hand-carved Jack-o-lanterns to get you in the mood for Halloween, and the Thirteenth Floor Entertainment Group will have them at Hudson Gardens Thursday through Monday nights at 6:30 p.m.

Magic of the Jack O’Lanterns “will delight adults and children alike” with the glowing display, as well as larger-than-life pumpkin displays, a magical carnival, a nautical seascape, pirate ship, dinosaurs and dragons, according to organizers. Tickets range from $21 to $35 and are available at magicofthejackolanterns.com. Hudson Gardens is at 6115 S. Santa Fe Dr. in Littleton

Thursday-Sunday. The staff at Noble Riot, a Denver wine bar that opened in 2019, love Syrah, a grape varietal that produces big-bodied reds, which are perfect for fall. As such, Noble Riot, 1336 27th St., is celebrating its third annual Syrah Week through Oct. 30. Guests will enjoy various specials, including special offerings by the glass or by the bottle.

On Sunday, the bar will raise a glass (and who knows what else) with an All Hallows Eve wine school and séance from 6:30 to 8 p.m. “The Syrah Séance class will explore the spirits of departed pioneers of Syrah with a worldly selection of earth-bound wines,” Noble Riot said. It will be taught by certified sommelier and assistant general manager Matt Strauch. Tickets are $69 per person and available at exploretock.com.

Pizza and beer are a quintessential Denver pairing, and you may find no better selection of both than at Hops & Pie on Tennyson Street. (Provided by Hops & Pie)

Saturday. The family-friendly Tennyson Street Fall Fest is back for its seventh year in the popular Tennyson Street business district in Denver’s Berkeley neighborhood. Things kick off between 41st and 43d avenues with a pet parade and costume contest, street-wide trick or treating and live music from The Copper Children. There will also be local vendors and artisans.

General admission tickets are $12 at eventbrite.com, while entrance for kids under 10 years old is free. Registration for the Pet Costume Parade is an additional $5. All proceeds of the Tennyson Street Fall Fest benefit the Tennyson Berkeley Business Association.

Saturday. For a more adult-centered activity on Tennyson, Hops & Pie Artisan Pizzeria, 3920 Tennyson St., once again hosts its annual Pumpkin Fest from noon to 4 p.m. The restaurant will tap at least ten different pumpkin beers and ciders from around the country.
