Celebrate National Get Outdoors Day

Fresh air, sunshine and blue skies come standard for life in Colorado; we are spoiled and it’s awesome. On Saturday June 14th let Mother Nature know how much you appreciate her and celebrate the 7th Annual National Get Outdoors Day! Each year this event strives to reconnect the nation’s youth with outdoor fun and healthy activities.

By promoting early education and creating an environment of exciting exploration, National Get Outdoors Day inspires kids to adventure and learn about the world outside their window. Our Colorado community will be gathering at City Park to host a plethora of experts, exhibitors and volunteers to educate our youth on all of the endless options for outdoor adventure in Colorado.

Bring the whole gang to City Park for a day filled with fun, free and educational outdoor activities. Visit four interactive villages where you can fish, paint, climb, bike, run, garden, jump, paddle and explore. This event also offers a number of adaptive activities so that every outdoor enthusiast, of all levels and abilities, can come and enjoy. Meet the businesses behind the adaptive products and learn first hand what they can do for you.


This year, they will mark the inaugural Go Play! 5K Race. Win prizes and giveaways as you dash through their outdoor adventure course. The Go Play! 5K will honor the top three finishers for both men and women, so you could go home with a prize or two. Registration is $30 per participant now and $40 per participant on the day of the race.


The National Get Outdoors Day is designed to quench your outdoor thirst and helps introduce little explorers to the many paths of fun outside. Conquer your fears by belaying into a great day outside and pick up some new talents from the experts.  Even Smokey The Bear will be in attendance, lending his knowledge and giving out hugs. Don’t forget to wish him a Happy 70th Birthday.


National Get Outdoors Day will be at Denver’s City Park from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
