What to do this weekend: Frozen Dead Guy Days, St. Patrick’s Day fun

Frozen Dead Guys for everyone!

Through Sunday. Colorado’s favorite cryogenically themed hoedown, Frozen Dead Guy Days, returns to Estes Park this week (assuming it isn’t snowed out) with a zombie crawl, Royal Blue Ball (Friday, March 15) and other activities, such as live music and “frosty games” — most of which take place Saturday, March 16.

“Festival goers can expect the weird and wonderful happenings from years past, including coffin races and a polar plunge, as well as plenty of new and elevated Estes twists, like a frostbite fashion show, a Bands and Bloodys Sunday Brunch and more,” organizers wrote. Tickets: $49 for the festival, and $99 for the Royal Blue Ball.

Saturday and Sunday events are at Estes Park Events Complex, 1125 Rooftop Way in Estes Park. or

St. Patrick’s Day family fun

Through Sunday. Besides the green beer, Irish cuisine specials, and vigorous singing and dancing, this year’s St. Patrick’s Day brings back the massive Denver St. Patrick’s Day Parade, which as of this writing is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, March 16, despite the intense storm this week. Free and family-friendly, it steps off at 19th and Wynkoop streets, with the best viewing for families at Blake Street from 23rd to 27th streets. See for more.

We’re also liking the jib of Old Towne Arvada’s St. Patrick’s Day Festival (noon-6 p.m. Saturday, with kids activities and entertainment) and Boulder Social’s Puppy Parade, with $10 donations per parading dog going to Boulder’s Farfel’s Farm and Rescue; it also gets you a house-brewed Social Beer (

Five Points has its first St. Paddy’s Day Pet Parade and Costume Competition, led by a brass band along Welton Street starting at 11 a.m. Saturday. It joins the historic neighborhood’s traditional pub crawl, spoken word poetry, and live DJ performances — attendees of which are encouraged to wear their most sparkling green gear.

An indie-songwriter dilemma

Tuesday. Madi Diaz’s indie-folk carries a mid-tempo hush that often sprawls into soaring choruses, as heard on “Don’t Do Me Good,” her sparkling duet with Grammy winner Kacey Musgraves. Diaz brings her show to the Bluebird Theater (3317 E. Colfax Ave. in Denver) on Tuesday, March 19. Tickets for the 16-and-up concert with openers Daniel Nunnelee and Patrick Dethlefs are $22 at

On the same night (whatever you choose, you’re in luck) at Globe Hall we also must include copacetic indie songwriter Rosali, whose new album “Bite Down” (March 22 on Merge Records) is by turns sprightly, heart-rending and impossibly smooth. Recommended for fans of Aimee Mann, Fleetwood Mac and Weyes Blood. Tickets for the 16-and-up show are $17. With Color Green and sterling Denver instrumental act Prairiewolf. 4483 Logan St. in Globeville.

Colorado Dragon Boat Film Fest

Through Sunday. Unique in the region, the Colorado Dragon Boat Film Festival in 2016 grew out of the so-named competitive event at Sloan’s Lake Park, with a compact slate of films exploring Asian American and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander heritage. It returns through Sunday, March 17, with screenings, Q&As with filmmakers, two “creative conversations” with community members, and the first Golden Dragon Award (for actress Ji-young Yoo).

Tickets are $12 per screening, $40 for opening and closing nights, $15 for Culinary Conversations, and free for community conversations (with a $5 suggested donation). See the full lineup and events schedule, including the free Saturday Asian Marketplace at 11 a.m. at the Sie FilmCenter, 2510 E. Colfax Ave. in Denver, at
