Built in the style of Richardsonian Romanesque architecture, the Kirk is a breathtaking events venue in the heart of LoHi. Its three rental areas include an auditorium showcasing the oldest organ in the Midwest, a flagstone patio, and an open gallery space. Its sandstone brick, stained glass windows, and sweeping gables make it an idyllic setting for mesmerizing Candlelight performances.
Built in Spanish Colonial architecture style, St. Cajetan’s is a Denver cultural and architectural landmark located on Auraria Campus. It is the first Hispanic parish in Denver, constructed in 1925, but now, the former church has become a popular events venue due to its grand circular arches that support the building and its impressive twin bell towers. The stunning architecture and excellent acoustics make St. Cajetan’s an ideal venue for enchanting and intimate concerts under candlelight.
Heritage Lakewood Belmar Park is a 20th-century history park and museum. The venue is made up of 15 historic buildings, more than 40,000 artifacts, and an outdoor amphitheater. Known for its arts and culture scene, Heritage Lakewood brings the community together. It is also the perfect place for a lovely walk and especially for an open-air Candlelight concert!
Located on the former Lowry Air Force Base, Wings Over The Rockies is a museum boasting over 100,000 square feet of space. Aircraft, military uniforms, and artifacts are some of the iconic exhibits on display at the museum. Immerse yourself in spellbinding performances surrounded by history and a taste for freedom. At Wings Over The Rockies, they are “guided by the past, but pushing toward the future”. In a similar sense, the Candlelight series is combining the old and the new.
The church is a unique blend of Gothic detailing and a Rococo theater with the latest technology. Trinity United Methodist Church has incredibly intricate stained-glass windows, typical of the Arts and Crafts movement, which flourished in North America between about 1880 and 1920. If you step into the church’s nave, you’ll be taken aback by the remarkable 19-th century grand pipe organ featuring 108 pipes in the organ’s facade and an additional 4,167 pipes in the back, making the total number of pipes 4,275, providing the perfect backdrop to intimate concerts.
Keeping in mind that Denver is known for its historic landmarks, it doesn’t prove too difficult to find an enchanting venue for Candlelight to illuminate. Picture yourself sitting inside an architecturally breathtaking venue or out in the open air at Heritage Lakewood as the soothing sound of classical music washes over you.
The concerts have been met by countless 5-star reviews, and guests have called it “a creative, enchanting, and new concert experience.”
