Community Events & Programming

The Stapleton MCA hosts a variety of events throughout the year.  The summer event series is home to the MCA's signature events, including the Stapleton Beer Festival and Stapleton Rocks...a Concert for a Cause.  Our community events bring the surrounding communities together, offering a variety of tasty local food and a fun and friendly atmosphere. Proceeds from MCA events benefit select charities and non-profits from around the region.  

 

Concerts on The Green

Stapleton has created its own outdoor amphitheater experience. The MCA hosts some of Denver's most well-known bands on the stage at The Green. Popular acts from last year included Chris Daniels and Hazel Miller. Dance 'til you drop or just sit back and relax. Either way, it is a great way for the whole family to enjoy music under the stars. This event is FREE and open to the public. Concerts begin at approximately 7pm, so come early to reserve your spot on The Green.

 

Movie on The Green

Grab your blankets, coolers, picnic, and your friends and neighbors! We say forget the indoor theater and move the movie outside. Movies are also FREE and open to the public. Showtimes begin at dark. The summer movie schedule includes movies from a variety of genres.

 

Stapleton Rocks...a Concert for a Cause

This all-day concert features local bands that will perform throughout the day on The Green. Outdoor games and activities will be available for the community. Some of the activities will include a rock-climbing wall and a bungee trampoline. Tickets must be purchased for each game/ activity. A concessions stand will also be available throughout the event, along with local food trucks. Proceeds from the games/activities will benefit select event charities.

This beer festival tops the charts as one of the most popular events of the season. The MCA hosts this annual festival in late summer, featuring local craft brewers and food trucks.
