Let the Holiday Madness Begin!

Let the Holiday Madness Begin!

It’s November already! Which means it’s now acceptable to listen to holiday music in public. It also means those colorful fall leaves you admired have now fallen and turned into piles of dirty brown leaves you have to rake. But the biggest November event of all is that one holiday that truly brings families together – Black Friday! (Or Cyber Monday for you introverts.)

We hope all your shopping dreams come true this season. In the meantime, we’ve lined up a few local events near the BackCountry neighborhood that will help you get the most out of your month.


November 19 – March 3, Denver Art Museum

Don’t miss this truly unique and exciting event! This exhibition surveys 70 years of the House of Dior’s enduring legacy and its global influence. This collection of more than 200 couture dresses, as well as accessories, costume jewelry, photographs, drawings, runway videos, etc., traces the history of the iconic haute couture fashion house, its founder, Christian Dior, and the subsequent artistic directors who carried Dior’s vision into the 21st century.
