Coloween 2022: Fantasy & Fashion by Collective360

Five thousand annual attendees have helped make Coloween Denver's longest-running adult costume party, and this legendary event continues to grow every year. Established firmly at the top among the hottest parties in the Denver metro area, it's equal parts music festival, art installation, haunted house, and dance party. Collective 360 blows our minds every year with state-of-the-art event production and intoxicating light shows. This year, they're filling 50,000 square feet of the Stockyards Event Center with mind-bending experiences. The theme, Fantasy & Fashion, promises to be a visually stunning phenomenon, and we can't wait to see what they have in store. If you're curious about what to expect, you can see photos from previous year's events here.


Costumed Halloween dance party and immersive experience

Coloween sets the bar for festival-style entertainment with details designed to engage and electrify your senses. Months of planning culminate with theatrical, musical, and visual displays that keep partygoers dancing and reeling with bass-thumping excitement. The production team is working with world-renowned set designers, such as Burning Man Project, to elevate this event in every way. Producers and designers from around the country are putting their creative energies together to execute a thrilling selection of Halloween-themed rooms and at least 20 immersive art installations. This is the grown-up Halloween event you've been dreaming of.


Music, entertainment, and refreshments

As details about the 12th annual Coloween continue to emerge, we're reminded of how it earned its name as one of Colorado's best dance parties. The entertainment options are almost endless, with 2 dance floors, 40 bars, a Forbidden Forest, and dozens of costumed performers. Nationally touring DJs perform on two massive stages under stunning light shows as entertainers fill every visual field with vivid, stimulating images. The music lineup currently includes DJ Manos, White Tiger, DJ Cyn, Dirty Fancy Boyz, VINNIE, and DJ Hot T Tyler Tarr. Music will explode from 2 stages as costumed dancers vibe to the hottest remixes, EDM, electronica, house, and tech bangers. The scene promises to be artistic, wild, and electrically charged as guests dance through the night.


Top tier costume contest with crazy cash prizes

The costume contest gets better every year, with Coloween guests pulling out all of the stops to participate in one of Denver's biggest Halloween costume contests. This year, a total of $2000 cash is up for grabs between two different contests, and the competition is always fierce. Registration begins when the doors open and closes at 11 pm when the finalists will be chosen. To read more about Coloween Costume Contest rules, click here.
