Littleton Twilight Criterium

Lots of race action, music and fun!

The Littleton Twilight Criterium is back for its fifth year! It’s a free festival atmosphere featuring food, a beer garden, kids activities and live music on the streets into the evening. A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit Doctors Care, which provides accessible care for the under-served.

A “criterium” race is defined as a timed circuit around a short, technical course. Spectators can watch the racers fly by the 0.8 mile course at nearly 30 mph! The event is part of USA Cycling’s National Calendar. There will be six total races, highlighted by the Men’s and Women’s Professional races under the lights.

Dance the night away with an old school rock band, a Police tribute band and one of Denver’s top party bands!
