How does Castle Rock celebrate Fri-YAY? With the fantastically fun First Fridays Concert Series — the perfect way to kick off the weekend and enjoy a summer evening in Castle Rock. The free, family friendly event takes place every first Friday of the month from June through August in Festival Park, the heart of Downtown.

The lineup features a variety of musical genres, from high energy dance music and smooth sailing yacht rock to classic country mainstays. Kick off the night at 5 p.m. with dinner and drinks from a variety of food trucks and our full-service cocktail bar. There also will be fun crafts for kids to enjoy before the live music begins at 6 p.m.

The 2023 First Fridays events include:

  • June 2 – No Limits | Neon Night 5K
  • July 7 – Buoys of Summer| Let’s Get Yachty 5K
  • Aug. 4 – Doublewide | Boot Scootin’ Boogie 5K 

Before you indulge in the Friday fun, start the night off right with the First Fridays 5K. These free, theme-based run/walks are fun for the entire family. The unofficially timed races start at 5:30 p.m. right in Festival Park. Registration is available online or at the race tent. 

With family friendly activities and a themed run/walk, First Fridays are the perfect nights to bring the entire family Downtown.
