Colorado has quickly become a hotspot for great music. As you travel around the state, you’ll immediately feel the passion that people have for the music industry, both as musicians and fans alike.

Specifically, the Mile High city is home to numerous top-notch music venues and dance clubs – from large, outdoor theaters like Red Rocks Amphitheater, to small, intimate spots like The Fillmore or Cervantes Masterpiece. Each location offers a distinct experience, so be sure to catch a show at each to choose your favorite.

Thankfully, the music scene in Colorado is also diverse. On any given weekend, you’ll find shows featuring rock bands, electronic DJs, jazz musicians, hip-hop artists, orchestras and bluegrass bands.

Music paired with cannabis makes for one memorable 4/20 weekend. Be sure to check back frequently as concerts are added!

Where to Buy

Denver is home to hundreds of awesome dispensaries, making it hard to choose only a few. Click here for a full list of dispensaries in the Mile High. Remember, both tourists and locals are allowed to purchase and possess up to 1oz of marijuana (or its equivalents) at a time.

Every shop is different, but here are a few of our favorites:

  • The Spot 420 (Southern CO)

    With locations conveniently spread throughout Pueblo and Trinidad, The Spot 420 is Southern Colorado’s top award-winning recreational dispensary chain. Plus, they offer the biggest selection of cannabis products in all of Southern Colorado. From premium cannabis flower, extracts, edibles, topicals, clones, cartridges, accessories, gear and more, The Spot 420 truly has something for every consumer. The Spot 420 also offers exclusive grow room tours, providing consumers the chance to see the plants up close, meet the grow team and experience a state-of-the art grow facility. Stop by The Spot 420 today to meet their friendly, knowledgeable staff and save big on your favorite products.

    The Spot 420 is running some great 4/20 deals throughout April at all locations. Visit our Colorado cannabis deals directory to check them out and save big before the big day!

  • GroundSwell Cannabis Boutique (Denver, CO)

    If you're a fan of music, then GroundSwell Cannabis Boutique might be the perfect spot for you to conduct your 4/20 shopping.

  • The Green Solution – Peoria (Denver, CO)

    The Green Solution is one of the most-awarded dispensaries in Colorado, with an impressive 12 locations. Their shop on Peoria is an impressive selection for recreational and medical customers. With close ties to musicians throughout the state (and country), TGS knows what they’re doing – from great bud to awesome budtenders, you won’t be disappointed.

  • Terrapin Care Station (Boulder, CO)

    Terrapin has several locations throughout the state (and a shop in Eugene, OR). They provide recreational and medical cannabis customers with the finest quality bud that’s grown using low-impact cultivation practices (that makes their cannabis extra green). Stop by their Boulder location to grab flower, edibles or their convenient, half-gram Terrapin packs.

Where to Stay

There are a number of cannabis-friendly hotels and private residences that allow consumption in and around Denver, CO. Remember that most places will only allow vaporization (vs. combustion), so make your purchases wisely.

Where to Eat

Denver has an incredible number of delicious restaurants for you to choose from. From sit-down dinners to grab-and-go bites.

Here’s a short list of our favorites:

  • Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox (American, $$)

    This centrally located restaurant is known for its “gastro-brothel” vibe with live music and eclectic American food. They’re owned and run by one of the most popular restaurant groups in town, so the food and ambiance won’t disappoint! Reservations are recommended.

  • The Walnut Room (Pizza, $$)

    This thin-crust, Chicago-style pizza place offers a heated patio, affordable drinks and live music all year round. It’s a casual eatery and bar that’s sure to hit your late-night pizza cravings.

  • Summit Music Hall (Bar Food, $)

    Check out this premiere music venue in LoDo (lower downtown), only one block from Coors Field. The Summit offers great beer and bar food to make anyone happy.

  • Illegal Pete’s (Mexican, $)

    With five locations around Denver, you’ll find great food for a great price. Illegal Pete’s serves all-natural meats and organic ingredients and nothing is pre-made, which means the best bite in every mouthful.
