As part of the 4thFest celebrations, the Rapids and Commerce City will host a family festival at DICK’S Sporting Goods Park prior to the Rapids’ match that will include live music, a bounce house, soccer darts, a rock-climbing wall, a mobile ropes course, an alpine tubing slide, a mechanical bull, a trackless train, pedal carts and a toddler zone among the activations. 4thFest is free and open to the general public.
In addition to the festival elements, the Rapids will be hosting a block party as part of 4thFest for the first time. The additional activation, which is part of the Rapids Block Party Series, will be located along the south side of the stadium and include a live DJ, drinks, food trucks and an LED wall that will stream the Rapids’ game live. Local fans who live within the vicinity of the stadium can bike to 4thFest and park their bikes at the Rapids’ recently launched Burgundy Bike Lot, which is located on the east side of the stadium between Gates B and C.
