One Hundred years ago Colorado's first fallen of WWI were laid to rest in American Military Cemeteries in France. Three decades later they were joined by the next generation of Colorado heroes who gave their lives in WWII, buried in 22 other American cemeteries around the world. All told over 2200 of our state's sons and daughters lie in eight foreign countries. On May 27th soil from the gravesites of many of our heroes laid to rest in those eight countries, will be solemnly interred at the Colorado Freedom Memorial, symbolizing their return to the home they left so many years ago.

Representatives of all eight of the countries where Colorado's fallen lie will be present for this special ceremony. Participants will also include the U.S. Air Force Honor Guard and Drill Team; The Sound of the Rockies Men's Chorus; The Governor's Own 101st Army Band; members of the famed 10th Mountain Division; Colorado National Guard and other military representatives, military re-enactors and special guests. Please bring chairs, blankets and arrive early to secure space for this once in a lifetime event.

Denver Brass Featuring Colorado Celtic Pipes and Drums Concert - 2pm

Following the ceremony, a free concert will be held in the park across from the Memorial featuring the world-famous Denver Brass joined by the Colorado Celtic Pipes and Drums. This patriotic salute to Colorado's military combines music and stories to pay tribute to the price paid for our freedom.

A free-will offering will be accepted during the concert for the Colorado Freedom Memorial's maintenance and upkeep. You'll also be able to purchase a rose to place at the Memorial, and enjoy Hamburgers and Hot Dogs for a donation, while they last. Plenty of parking will be available with attendants providing assistance.

These free events are made possible by the generous donations of people like you. Thank you!
