South Platte Kids Zone: Fun Activities for Kids


A Taste of Colorado is one of Denver’s most anticipated end-of-summer events, scheduled this Labor Day Weekend and expected to be the city’s best free festival of the year. You might already know that the event brings the best in live music, local food, and unique shopping to Downtown Denver’s Civic Center Park, but did you know that it’s also an exciting festival for kids? With free admission, a huge variety of family-friendly activities, and a special Kids Zone designed especially for young festival goers, A Taste of Colorado is a Denver event you won’t want to miss.
Located in the event’s fun-filled Kid Zone, these are just some of the one-of-a-kind activities for kids at A Taste of Colorado:

The Denver Public Library will be located in the Kids Zone with their Wheelie book bike as well as offering story time on Saturday and Sunday from 1pm – 4pm.

Nursing mothers and families can visit the “Mommy Station”, a convenient area located in the Kids Zone for parents to nurse, change diapers, and relax in a private environment complete with a rocking chair. An assortment of supplies including diapers and baby wipes are offered as part of the “Mommy Station” experience.

Lots of Family Fun!

Little ones can explore and learn with the interactive “Snug Play” pop-up playground from Street Scapes. “Snug Play” offers unlimited creative possibilities for children to create active, imaginative play spaces with large-scale loose play elements perfect for jumping, bouncing, rocking, or spinning.

Exciting Interactive Inflatables & Attractions
Infunity Events is bringing their best selection of inflatables, attractions, games & entertainment! Between the climbing wall, laser tag, obstacle courses, and bounce houses, there is no shortage of adventure at this year’s Festival!

HAVE A KID-SIZED PORTION OF SOMETHING TASTY & EXOTIC – Kid-friendly food vendors are located near the Kids Zone selling pretzels, popcorn, funnel cakes, pizza and more. A Taste of Colorado is also an opportunity for parents to encourage their children to sample new cuisine (we have alligator!), as many of the restaurants offer “taste-sized” portions for three to four tickets.
