  • Uncover the secrets of The Brown Palace Hotel during a guided historical tour led by the hotel’s historian. Held in the afternoon on Wednesday and Saturday, these fascinating walking tours give insight into the events and people that have shaped the hotel’s history. Topics run the gamut from architecture to presidential stays, and there is even a special ghost-focused version offered during the autumn months. The Brown Palace Hotel tours last approximately one hour and 15 minutes and are complimentary for overnight hotel guests.

  • Round up the gang to witness a unique Brown Palace tradition, an appearance by the National Western Stock Show’s Grand Champion Steer during the hotel’s iconic Afternoon Tea. Just like the city of Denver itself, Steer Day is a uniquely Coloradan confluence of big-city sensibilities and cowboy soul. Happening since 1946, when a man named Dan Thornton decided to parade that year’s victor through the lobby of the Mile High City’s grandest hotel, the annual January event has been a Denver institution ever since. Each year, hotel guests and ticketed attendees crowd around each of The Brown Palace’s atrium balconies for a look at the winner and runner-up, while outside the hotel, a line wraps around the block waiting for their shot at a photo.

  • Start the holidays off with a bang (and a buzz) during the Annual Champagne Cascade. Held each November since 1987, this sparkling spectacle serves as the opening act of the hotel’s festive season, featuring a Christmas-tree-like pyramid of around 6,000 Baccarat crystal wine glasses that takes several hours to stack. The yuletide tradition begins by slicing off the tops of the bottles with replicas of Napoleonic sabers before pouring the bubbly in the glass on the very top of the tower. However, not every delicate glass gets filled. In fact, only two bottles of champagne have the distinction of being poured down the pyramid, as it would require around 70 cases of bubbly to fill up each of the layers.
