AUtumn Fest 2020

A! U? Ever wondered what makes the city of Golden so special? Well, it’s you of course! At Golden History Museum & Park, we feel very grateful to have such a wonderful community to serve. Come join us at our first annual AUtumn Fest to celebrate all of the things that make Golden a bright and shining community.

Rush down to the Golden History Museum (923 10th St.) from 11 – 4 for a packed afternoon of free activities. Check out some incredible chalk art, play a game, pop in to see silent movies made by our very own summer camp kids, and buy a bite from a local food truck. You’ll also have a chance to make your own art, hang out with some farm animals, and can even purchase a beverage at our back patio-turned beer garden.

The best part? It’s fun for the whole family and it’s a great way to welcome the fall season. Now that is just pure gold.
