Our community is pulling together in so many ways that make us proud to live in Denver! Below is Week 29 of our Feel Good Friday email series featuring some of those stories from across the city’s tourism and hospitality community. Enjoy!

Mile High Tree 2019

For the second consecutive holiday season, VISIT DENVER has begun constructing the Mile High Tree, a 110-foot-tall, digital art installation in downtown Denver. Located on the 16th Street Mall at Welton Street, the festive structure will be open to the public Nov. 20th – Jan. 2nd and is designed to bring holiday cheer and to help drive much needed business to the local tourism and hospitality community. This year, the tree will offer a socially distanced experience that will comply with COVID capacity and safety standards as well as hours that adhere to the new 10 p.m. guidelines.

As a much welcomed ski season approaches, the National Sports Center for the Disabled (NSCD) is happy to announce it will re-launch its in-person ski programming at Winter Park Resort after COVID forced the organization to pause all of its popular offerings for the disabled community including summer overnight camps and therapeutic horseback programs. Celebrating its 50th Anniversary, the NSCD offers adaptive lessons for individuals living with disabilities in a variety of action sports, adventure sports and competitive programs across the Front Range and mountains.

At a time when our teachers and students have never been more challenged, the Denver Broncos and Delta Dental of Colorado have teamed up to launch Touchdowns for Teachers, a program that recognizes Colorado teachers for outstanding service to their schools and communities. The Broncos are asking fans to identify and nominate a game-changing teacher/educator (K-12) who goes above and beyond to educate and inspire. Ten honorees will be selected each semester by a panel of community members, the Broncos and Delta Dental of Colorado. Nominations can be submitted online here.

It has been a challenging year for the meetings and conventions industry, but that didn’t stop Global Trade Magazine from recently recognizing Denver among the top three convention cities in the Southwest, citing our city’s walkability, affordability, safety, exciting tourism options and city assets. With four hotels on the Top 100 Meeting Hotels list and more than 11,000 hotel rooms within walking distance of the Colorado Convention Center, Denver has earned its reputation as a top tier convention city.
