The 6 Best Adventurous Things to do in Denver in October
From great weather, to great autumn events, Denver has a ton to do in October
October in Denver, Colorado is usually your last chance to get outside while it’s still warm (although the cold doesn’t stop us from spending the day outside!). If you’re from out of town, or a native just not sure what to do in Denver this month, here’s our list of the best adventurous things to do in October in the Mile High City:
1. Great American Beer Fest
Every October, the Great American Beer Festival (often referred to as simply GABF) graces the Colorado Convention Center. If you like beer (Denver LOVES it’s beer), then this event is a must with 800 breweries showing off all their finest brews. Be sure to buy your tickets the minute they go on sale, often sometime in August, as this is one of the hottest tickets in the city and will sell out in seconds.
2. The Denver Adventure
I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention our signature event, The Denver Adventure. This city wide scavenger hunt is sure to be a blast with prizes totaling over 1,100$ hidden in various places around the Mile High City, including a trip to Snowmass for the team that finds it first!

3. Attend a Sporting Event
With a team in all the major American sports, October is a great time to catch a game in Denver. Sorry baseball fans, the Rockies’s season is probably going to end in September, but with the Broncos, Avalanche and Nuggets, you’re sure to find something that suits you.
4. Soak Up the Last Remaining Warm Denver Sunshine
October in Colorado is one of the state’s best kept secrets. The average daily temperature is 66 degrees, but any local will tell you Colorado is far from average. It’s not uncommon to get bright sunny days in the high 70’s and even low 80’s. This nice weather comes at a price though – it could dump a foot of snow for literally no reason at any time.
5. Corn Maze
Have you ever gotten lost in a corn field? If not, now is your chance. With so much farming just a short distance from the heart of Denver, it’s not difficult to get to any of the various corn mazes.
6. Zombie Crawl
Imagine you’re enjoying a nice brunch outside on the 16th Street Mall, when suddenly you see a zombie. Then 1,000 more go running by. For over 10 years, the Denver Zombie Crawl has attracted those most in touch with their Halloween spirit and is another must witness event.
