Fall 2018 in Denver

September 6, 2018 / Denver

Great American Beer Fest

 GABF Denver

When: Thursday, September 20 – Saturday, September 22
Where: Colorado Convention Center

Beer enthusiasts rejoice—Great American Beer Festival is on tap! Break out your best walking shoes because starting September 20, nearly 4,000 beers will be available for your taste-testing pleasure across 380,000 square feet of festival grounds at Denver’s one and only Colorado Convention Center.

Session Times:

  • Thursday, 9/20: 5:30pm–10pm
  • Friday, 9/21: 5:30pm–10pm
  • Saturday, 9/22: 12pm–4pm
  • Saturday, 9/22: 5:30pm–10pm
There will be 5 pickup and dropoff zones conveniently located around the convention center. Select the nearest one and meet your driver curbside.

Once you’re inside the convention center, stop by Booth 8-1 (across from the GABF store and concessions) to grab free swag! 

Rider pro tips:

  • Share your location with your driver. Riders can show their exact location to their drivers by turning on Live Location Sharing. Location sharing is only during the pickup experience.
  • Share your trip with loved ones. You can now share your whereabouts and trip status with friends and family, all right from the app.
  • In-app chat directly through the Uber app to contact your driver for the perfect pickup.
  • Spotlight. When you’re in crowded areas or it’s nighttime, it can be hard for you and your driver to find one another. With Spotlight, you can light up your phone with a special color specific to your driver.
  • Get in the right car (and other safety tips). Before you get in the car, check that license plate, driver photo, and driver name all match what’s listed in the app. Rides can only be requested through the app, so never get in a car with a driver who claims to be with Uber and offers a ride.

If you know fall in Denver, you know it’s one of the best times of the year. With it comes big events like Grandoozy and the Great American Beer Fest. Whether you’re a local or just visiting, you’ll find everything you need to help you get around right here. 



When: Friday, September 14 – Sunday, September 16
Where: Overland Park Golf Course
