The Miner Street Market: Idaho Springs Events for the Whole Family!
As summer approaches quickly, Idaho Springs events are here for you. The Miner Street Market is back this summer! If you’re looking for a quick getaway to the perfect mountain town for food, fun and more check out what’s happening in the heart of Idaho Springs.
What is Miner Street Market?
The Miner Street Market is an open-street market and the place to be this summer. Just west of Denver, Idaho Springs is a convenient day trip in the picturesque Rocky Mountains. An assortment of local Idaho Springs businesses and restaurants are ready to entertain locals and visitors on Miner Street.
Tapping into the gold rush history of Idaho Springs, Miner Street will be decked out with themed decorations. The gold rush began in Idaho Springs and helped build this town into what it is today. To get a feel for this classic mining town, you’ll be able to see genuine, historic mining carts and lanterns adorning the street.
Idaho Springs Events
Whether you’re heading to the Miner Street Market with kids or getting away with some friends, there are Idaho Springs events for every age! Some activities include:
- Petting Zoo (once a month)
- Burro Parade – Vote for the best dressed Burro!
- Weekly Produce Vendor
- Wild West Shows on Sundays (twice a month)
- Cornhole League
- Steampunk Parade
- Homemade and Locally Produced Goods for Sale
- Live Music every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday
In addition, on the third Saturday of every month is ‘A Taste of Idaho Springs.’ The open carry of alcohol on Miner Street will be permitted during this event and restaurants will be preparing their own small plate and beverage for you to try. Even better though, 10% of the sale of each plate and beverage will go to a local non-profit, the first beneficiary being Carlson Elementary School to help finish their playground project.
Not only will you be supporting local Idaho Springs events and businesses, but you’ll be supporting charity. It makes for guilt free fun!
