Now it really seems like Denver is beginning to return to normal.

What's happening: The summer events we all love are set to resume, starting this weekend with three free shows at the Levitt Pavilion.

From there, it's all happening:

  • Santa Fe Art District's First Friday kicks off June 4 with masks and social distancing rules. The art walk continues on the first Friday of each month from 13th to Alameda avenues and Kalamath to Inca streets.
  • City Park Jazz starts June 13 with "The Burroughs." Grab a picnic blanket and snacks for the two-hour show that typically starts at 6pm in the park pavilion.
  • The Juneteenth celebration begins June 18 with a concert and continues the next day with the annual parade, one of the city's longest running. The two-day street Festival runs from 2pm to 8pm in the Welton Street and Five Points corridors.
  • Bookmark Aug. 27-29 for the return of the Underground Music Show. Tickets are on sale now and the indie-music lineups are expected in July.
