FOUNDERS GREEN IS THE SCENE

For centuries, towns were built around a central green — a place where people gathered for community events or just to relax and watch the world go by. The same goes for Stapleton. Lined by oak trees and distinguished by a sculptural fountain, Stapleton’s Founders Green has an urban formality to its design. And a festive vibe that makes it the perfect Denver venue.

Thanks to the Stapleton Master Community Association, residents are treated to a weekly farmers market, a monthly art and antique market, regular concerts, movies under the stars and even a little Shakespeare … just to name some of the fun.

Here is a list of the events you can find on The Green:

  • Farmers Market – held every Sunday from mid-June through mid-October on The Green.  Local vendors provide Colorado-grown produce, tasty baked goods, specialty meats, gourmet food items and more. Support your local growers and meet your neighbors at the farmers market. To become a vendor at the Stapleton farmers market or if you would like more information about the event, please click here.
  • Concert on The Green – the Stapleton MCA hosts some of Denver’s most well-known bands on the stage at The Green.  Popular acts from previous years included Chris Daniels and Hazel Miller.
