The famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre needs little introduction. The open-air venue built alongside some of the towering red sandstone formations found throughout the park has long been considered one of the most amazing experiences for concerts not only in the colorful state of Colorado but in the entire United States. However, not everyone knows that the park is much more than just a concert venue and is well worth a visit when passing through nearby Denver. Aside from touring the amphitheatre which serves as a landmark itself, there are regularly scheduled events, fantastic hiking trails, and more. Here is a list of things to enjoy at Red Rocks Amphitheatre when no bands are on stage.

10 Film On The Rocks

Film on the Rocks is a wildly popular event for all ages that takes place multiple times during the summer. Popular films start at dusk, with other entertainment like comedians or live music taking place beforehand. Featured films cover a range of genres, from modern-day blockbusters like the Thor series to classics like The Sandlot. A full schedule is available on the website, and admission is $16 per person.

9 Yoga On The Rocks

Yoga fanatics can partake in an elevated version of their routine here on Saturdays at 7 a.m. Leading instructors change monthly, and classes are often given in both English and Spanish. Minors are allowed to attend with a waiver signed by a parent or guardian. All that is asked of participants is to bring their own yoga mat and bottle of water.

  • Admission = $17 per session, 5-pack for $80, or Season Pass for $150.

8 Colorado Music Hall Of Fame

A historic building in the park known as The Trading Post, built in 1931, deserves a visit on its own, but its most interesting feature is the Colorado Music Hall of Fame. This free museum features exhibits on some of Colorado's most famous musicians like John Denver, Judy Collins, and Philip Bailey.

The Trading Post Trail is a quick and easy 1.4-mile hike that offers a quick showcase of the park's natural wonders of rock formations, meadows, and picturesque valleys. As the name implies, this trail will take visitors by The Trading Post landmark building, where they can take it easy for a moment and see what is inside.

5 Visitor's Center

Most destinations may not typically hold a visitor's center worth mentioning, but Red Rocks Amphitheatre has one more than worthy of a stop for travelers who want to see the park on a day with no events scheduled. Besides serving as a headquarters to direct visitors around the park grounds, there are interactive exhibits celebrating both the geological and cultural history of the park, including a small Hall of Fame display of musicians who have performed there.

The amphitheater's steep stairways have become a very popular option for those who want to get their workout in with views and an atmosphere that could never be enjoyed inside a gym. Of course, this is only an option outside of scheduled event times, so one should always check the event calendar.
