A little bit of wild,
a whole lot of wonderful

Last year’s Wild Wonderful Weekend* was so much fun, we decided to make it a thing. So you and everybody else are invited to come to Centerra for another long weekend of outdoor games, outdoor music and, well, all sorts of outdoorsy-ness. (After all, this is Centerra, Colorado’s first Certified Community Wildlife Habitat.)

Scroll to get details for all the events, including our big Saturday night concert headlined by Lady Denim.

*Wild Wonderful Weekend is a family-friendly affair hosted by the equally wonderful folks of the Centerra Engagement Assembly.

About Wild Wonderful Weekend

It’s hard to believe, but Centerra is over 20 years old. And throughout that time, it has quietly been growing into a very special place. A place with everything from beautiful homes to corporate headquarters to fine art to raw nature. But the fact is, most people only know Centerra as the place where you do your shopping or grab dinner and a movie or maybe go for a medical appointment. So we’d been wondering how to share the fullness of Centerra with the people of Northern Colorado. Well, a couple years ago we hit on an idea for a big three-day celebration of all things Centerra: with live music, art, shopping, nature walks … the whole shebang. And that’s how Wild Wonderful Weekend came to be. We hope you’ll join us.
