4th of July 4th Festival - Golden Lions Park

The Golden Lions Club is organizing and hosting the 4th of July community celebration in Lions Park again this year. This is one of the major ways for the Lions to give back to the Golden community and our country. Activities include music provided by three bands starting at 11:30am. The celebration is designed to be a day for families, friends and neighbors to get together at the beautiful park on 10th Street to picnic or purchase food and drink from American Legion Golden Post 21, five specialty food trucks, cold Coors and Golden City Brewery beer, Bonacquisti Wines (Denver's Urban Winery) and enjoy all the festivities.

Raffle Sponsors


In order to be able to provide free music and entertainment, Golden Lions are selling raffle tickets. Proceeds from ticket sales are used for the most part to fund the event, and any excess goes back into community betterment projects. It is also a way for the community to support the Lions and what they do to make Golden a great place to live, from building the public restroom on 12th Street to dugouts at Ulysses Park and awarding scholarships to seniors at Golden High School. For $5 each or five tickets for twenty dollars, you get a chance to win one of many prizes including a grand prize of $1000 donated by the Lions Club. Also, the tickets are printed with coupons that can be used for discounts with local merchants. You don't have to be present to win. Winners are announced throughout the day with the grand-prize winner identified just before the fireworks. Most of the raffle prizes are donated by local merchants and businesses as their way of supporting the event and the community.
