What’s Happening in Lafayette in March

This month we’ve suggested a few events outside of Lafayette since they’re Colorado favorites and worth the drive. However, as usual we also have a few notable local events you should definitely mark on your calendar too.

Rocky Mountain STEAM Fest 2019

  • Mar 2, & 3
  • 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
  • Boulder County Fairgrounds – 9595 Nelson Road, Longmont

This annual event is well-worth the drive to Longmont. It’s suitable for all ages and features science, technology, inventions, and a chance to experiment.

Visitors will see drones, rockets, WWII airplanes, tech, fine arts, and can participate in hands-on steam activities. Reasonably-priced one or two-day individual passes and a family pack make this a very affordable outing you’re sure to enjoy.

2019 Mile High Beer Festival

  • Mar. 2
  • 1:00 pm – 9:00 pm
  • Number 38, 3560 Chestnut Place, Denver

Craft beer enthusiasts won’t want to miss this event, since it’s bigger and better than ever and in a new location. Featuring over 40 Colorado breweries and over 90 of their craft beers plus great music, this over 21-years old event is worth the drive to Denver.

Funds support Minds Matter of Denver, pairing low-income high school students with two adult mentors. They work together after school on summer and college applications, preparing for tests, strengthening their writing and speaking skills, and helping in the community.

Chamber Annual Dinner & Awards Ceremony

  • Mar. 7
  • 6:00 pm
  • The Gatehouse – 1055 S. 112th St. (Hwy 287)

This annual event celebrates our business community and those who demonstrate exemplary business practices. If you want to attend, you must register through the link above by February 28th. The cost is $35, including beer, wine, cider, and food and of course the awards ceremony.

This year marks the Chamber’s 65th year, so dig out anything you might own that echoes 1954. Your stellar 50s attire might even win a prize.

AARP Safe Driving Course

Lafayette Sustainable Film Series

  • Mar. 12
  • 6:30 pm doors open – film 7:00 pm
  • The Arts Hub – 420 Courtney Way

The Waste Reduction Advisory Committee (WRAC), the Arts HUB, Lafayette Energy Sustainability Committee (LESAC), and Walking Mountain Science Center present yet another film in their series on the 12th. It’s free and open to the public.

Don’t worry if you missed the other flicks, since each film stand on its’ own. This time the documentary is Who Owns Water? It explores the issues behind water rights as highlighted in a three state battle over the freshwater of the Chattahoochee River, but these issues could just as easily apply to our state.
