I wanted to post a reminder about the two main ways you can get a free annual pass to our national parks – it’s saved us about $75 over the past month, between a couple of visits to Black Canyon of the Gunnison and one to Great Sand Dunes!
If you have a 4th grader, you can get a pass that’s valid during their 4th grader school year and the following summer. There’s a form to fill out and print online, and then they give you a card when you use it for the first time. The 4th grader must be with you every time you use the pass, and you must print out the initial paper pass; they won’t accept a digital version.
If you are active-duty military or a dependent, you can get a free annual pass when you show your military ID. This pass will cover yourself and anyone in the same vehicle (for the parks that charge a per-vehicle fee). Disabled veterans can receive a free lifetime pass (which also admits the people in the same vehicle).
Tuesday, June 4th, will be a free admission day at the Denver Botanic Gardens at York Street and the gardens at Chatfield Farms as well! You can find out information about each location on their website.
The next free day at the York Street gardens will be on July 10th and at Chatfield Farms, the next free day is July 2.
Don’t forget that Colorado Springs Utilities has a xeriscape garden that’s free to visit! It’s small, but I think it’s worth a visit – you can see my post with photos here.
On Tuesdays during the month of June, SELECT Chick-fil-A restaurants will be offering a selected breakfast item for free with any purchase! Here’s a link to each participating location’s Facebook announcement for details at that location:
Update on June 4th: It looks like all of the freestanding CFAs in our area are participating (not mall locations, though).
A free Get Outdoors Day event will be held at Memorial Park in Colorado Springs this Saturday, June 1st: they’ll have opportunities for the whole family to fish, bike, rock climb, paddleboard, and more! Get all the details here.
Raising Cane’s will open its first Colorado Springs location this Wednesday, May 29th, and has various ways you can win free food:
The new restaurant will kick off its grand opening festivities at 8:30 a.m., with a “Lucky 20” drawing to award 20 customers ages 13 and older Free Cane’s for a Year! Colorado Springs’ new Raising Cane’s will accept entries from 8:30-9 a.m., with the Lucky 20 drawing held between 9-10 a.m. Caniacs must be present to win.
The first 100 dine-in customers ages 13 and older to purchase a Combo meal will receive a free limited-edition Cane’s T-shirt, along with a voucher for a free Box Combo…that may be redeemed on a subsequent visit.
Their new location is at 7585 N. Academy Blvd. and you can read the official press release here.
The first weekend of June is the annual free fishing weekend in Colorado! This year, on June 1st and 2nd, you can fish without a license (all other rules apply). Check out all the details on this event and fishing in Colorado here.
This coming Sunday, June 2nd, will be a free admission day for the Denver Museum of Nature and Science! They’re open from 9 AM to 5 PM, and you can check out their current exhibitions here. Their next free day will be on Tuesday, July 2nd. You can find the full list of 2019 free days here.
If you’re military, you can receive a $3 discount on general admission, and free admission from Memorial Day through Labor Day through Blue Star Museums.
