Englewood residents have gathered throughout this summer at the city's “SunSET Summer” concert series near city hall and the Englewood light rail station. And even though summer is winding down, the city still has a long list of events in store that will run into December.
Here's a look at the rest of this year's events organized or promoted by the City of Englewood.
Movie in the Park
The second of two “Movies in the Park” events takes place on Sept. 3. It's a showing of “Babe” at Belleview Park on the Jack Poole Field — with “special guests from the Englewood Farm,” the city's website says.
The Englewood Silent Disco allows you to pick the music you want to dance to and listen as loud as you want. (At silent discos, people hear music through wireless headphones.) For those who don't feel like dancing, the event also offers snacks and a beer garden. It takes place 7-11 p.m. Sept. 10 at the CityCenter Amphitheater — near city hall and the Englewood light rail station at 1000 Englewood Parkway.
Neighborhood Rehab Project Day of Service
You can volunteer to give back to your community by making sure homes are warm, safe and dry for those in need. The “Be a Tool” event takes place Sept. 11. Learn more at BeaTool.org.
Last summer concert
The Walker Williams Band will perform at the CityCenter Amphitheater on Sept. 15.
Englewood Block Party
The annual Englewood Block Party closes down the 3400 block of South Broadway in downtown Englewood, just north of U.S. Highway 285 near Hampden Avenue. The event will offer live music, a different local band every hour, vendors from local businesses, food and a beer garden. It runs from 3-9 p.m. Sept. 18.
Symposium of Senior Safety
Learn all aspects of keeping seniors safe, healthy and aware of dangers. The event will offer advice about falls, fires, staying safe while out in the community and other topics. Space is limited. Call 303-762-2660 for registration.

The City of Englewood is starting a “People's Market,” according to its website. The city is seeking businesses that sell unique arts and crafts, or food goods, including locally grown produce. Ideal vendors are “sustainably focused, passionate artisans, and use thoughtfully sourced ingredients,” the city's website says.
The market takes place 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Oct. 2 at Grow + Gather, at 900 E. Hampden Ave.

Amid the “changing colors and fallen leaves,” you can eat a “delicious meal of ham, potatoes, green beans and carrot cake” at this event, along with some entertainment. Tickets are $10 in advance or $12 the day of the event.
