Where: Checker Square, Baseline

  • Colorado’s own Wirewood Station will get your toes tapping to their authentic Rocky Mountain sound. Known as the “best acoustic group” in Colorado 4 years running, you are sure to enjoy this concert under the stars!
  • Drop by the Baseline tent and make a donation to Smart Commute and earn your choice cold one; local brew or lavender lemonade.  Beverages slinging by the Boozy Buckaroos!
  • Get the kiddos excited about biking with our bike decoration station hosted by Broomfield Council on Arts and Humanity.
  • Be sure to bring your wallet and your appetite as The CO Pig Rig, Denver’s first pork centric food truck, will be onsite selling tacos and barbecue starting at 5:30pm. Utilizing a special blend of chili rubs and smoke, they serve up some of the best KC styled BBQ on wheels.
  • Say hello to our wonderful partners from the trails and explore the many opportunities they bring to the community:
    • Join the Broomfield riding community and make a pledge to ride 100 miles this summer as part of the Broomfield 100 challenge. You’ll want to check out the City of Broomfield’s Outdoor Passport filled with maps to 27 destinations to visit and challenges to complete before Broomfield Days in September.
    • Learn how you can help keep our trails beautiful as part of the Master Restoration Specialist Program from Baseline’s partners at Butterfly Pavilion.
    • Our partners from Smart Commute are hosting a Bike Corral to safely store your bike while you enjoy the festivities.  Be sure to learn all about their Bike to Summer programs. They’ll help find trails so you can ditch the car and ride to work this summer. Everyone who visits the Smart Commute booth will be entered into a drawing to win an ultra-safe, dual-beam ShineOn bike light.

In advance of the evening – snag your very own Benefits of a Bike T-Shirt!  $25 per shirt, every shirt comes with a voucher for a free drink at the event – your choice of Beer or Lemonade. A portion of all proceeds goes to Smart Commute.  Sales only open until May 19, 2023.
