Community and friends come together to celebrate everything Parker at this huge community festival sponsored by the Parker Chamber of Commerce.
Parker Days began in the 1970s as a small community fair – an opportunity to enjoy live music, carnival rides, and a picnic with neighbors. Over the years, the event grew in both size and scope with the 2019 festival hosting nearly 300,000 attendees. Parker Days takes over most of the Downtown Parker area for three full days of music, food and beverage, and family fun.
Whether you’re enjoying a culinary demonstration, dancing to old-school country music, colliding with friends in a human hamster ball, or jamming to a silent disco – you will make many memories at this annual Parker tradition.
After two years of cancellation due to COVID, Parker Days will return in 2022 with a slightly smaller footprint but all the fun our community has come to expect. There will be musical stages featuring fun cover bands. There will be more than 200 Marketplace artists and vendors offering a wide variety of goods. You will also be able to enjoy food from more than 30 restaurants and food trucks along with beer, wine, and specialty drinks throughout the site. There are tons of activities for kids and families, including street performers, games, inflatables, and more. Carnival attractions will thrill teenagers and adults, while a milder section will give the little ones many happy memories.
Unlimited ride passes are available on site, or can be purchased in advance.
