Graduation is a major milestone worth celebrating. It’s the moment full of excitement that proud parents, guardians, and role models have been waiting for!
It’s easy to pull out all the stops for friends and family to join a significant milestone celebration, and planning for special moments can feel overwhelming. We’re here to help make planning a breeze to celebrate your special grad.
BRING THE GRAD VIBES AND PLAN A CELEBRATION TO REMEMBER
Invite loved ones to experience the local places where you spend time. From catering, indoor and outdoor venues, and lodging for out-of-town guests to navigating the best photo-worthy sites and photographers to help capture the day’s memories for years to come. No matter what you need, Downtown Fort Collins makes it easy to honor your graduate’s accomplishments, at any level, in a truly special way.
May weather in Colorado sometimes leaves us guessing, but those warmer days present options to explore restaurants that offer outdoor & patio dining options and soak up the sun while reminiscing on some of your favorite moments together.
HAVE FAMILY AND FRIENDS COMING FROM OUT OF TOWN?
Suggest their stay downtown with two luxurious lodging options at the historic Armstrong Hotel or The Elizabeth Hotel, both pet-friendly! These locations are nestled right in the heart of downtown with access to various recreational opportunities, fun family activities, local craft breweries, boutiques, vibrant nightlife scenes, and cultural attractions that showcase the charm and quaint character of Downtown Fort Collins.
A special bonus during CSU Graduation weekend, May 12 – 14, catch the evening green and gold splash pad pop jet light show in Old Town Square! Pop jets are on daily (weather dependent) from 8:00 am – midnight; evening light show from 8:00 pm – midnight.
