Christmas Colorado

December 9, 2016 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Join History Colorado for a holiday concert with vocalist Marta Burton and pianist Hank Troy, rich with beloved holiday music and memories of growing up in Colorado over the last century. The show celebrates 102 years of holiday illumination in the Mile-High City telling the story of how Denver became the “Christmas Capitol of the World.” Our story begins in 1914 when Sturgeon Electric’s founding father, David Dwight Sturgeon, lit up an outdoor pine tree with red and green bulbs to cheer his ill son. “Pinky” Belford Wayne is the crusading reporter for the Denver Post who inspires the city to follow suit.

[$4 – $5]
