Events

Since 1970, the Golden Civic Foundation has helped to build a lively downtown, a thriving economy, and a strong connection with our community. We host two primary fundraising events per year to benefit our community programming.

7th annual Golden Summer Jam – june 20, 2024

A Community Celebration of Golden Bands, Bites, & Beer

Golden Summer Jam is a community celebration of local talent and flavor held at the Colorado Railroad Museum on Thursday, June 20, 2024 from 5:00 PM to 9:30 PM. 

This 100% Golden-sourced event features live bands with Golden connections, family fun and activities for all ages, and local bites and beer. This year’s performers include Heavy Diamond Ring, The Dollhouse Thieves, and Gilded Legion (Golden High School’s Rock Band). Guests will have the opportunity to explore CRRM’s iconic 15-acre railyard with more than 100 locomotives, catch a ride on a vintage passenger train, and enjoy the miniature garden railway and a variety of activities provided by our local nonprofit and business partners. 

 

ANNUAL FALL FUNDRAISING EVENT

SAVE THE DATE! October 26 at Denver Marriott West!

The Golden Civic Foundation has held a fall fundraiser since 1975. These fall fundraisers have ranged from meaningful galas to the Wild West Oktoberfest and Bavarian Banquet in 2023. This longstanding tradition of hosting a fall fundraiser is the primary way that the Golden Civic Foundation raises money to support its community grants program. As of 2023, this program has provided more than $7.47 million in funding to non-profit organizations that provide social, civic, cultural and education-based services to Golden residents. Please check back for details! 

“The Golden Civic Foundation was instrumental in the purchase and renovation of our beautiful building, and has given each of our organizations a home we can be proud of.  But more than that, over the years, the Foundation has supported all of us with grants that have enabled us to grow our membership, enhance our library, expand our museum, and purchase tools to maintain the trails we love so much.  Supporting the Golden Civic Foundation supports all of us.”
