manipalooza and silent disco
By day, celebrate the best of Manitou with games, face painting, a costume contest, live music and food trucks. By night, get your groove on at the quietest dance party. It’s a rockin’ silent night!
summer concert series and more
Ah, the sweet sound of summer! Enjoy free music in the park all week long at the Liberty Lawn Concerts, Summer Concert Series, and the Drum Circle in the Park. No, that’s not a typo. There’s a drum circle.
