Join us for the 94th Western Welcome Week Traditional Kickoff – Concert & Fireworks in Sterne Park!

Bring your blanket and lawn chairs, and sit back and enjoy the music of The Denver Municipal Band – building community through music for nearly two centuries, and a sparkling fireworks show after the music.. There will be food trucks at the event: 5280 GrilledCheese, Mike’s Coneys. RxR Texas Taco’s, K and D Kitchen, Woodhill Small Batch BBQ, Billy’s Beef Burgers, and  maybe some more!  There will be a large crowd so feel free to bring your own picnic. Kona Ice and Bellaire Kettle Corn will be on site selling their tasty treats. Beer and wine will not be sold at the event.

The National Anthem will be sung by Summit Sound of Voices West.

We are excited for the return of the Drum Line from the “Pride of Littleton” High School Marching Band, performing before the Denver Municipal Band.

Western Welcome Week is very fortunate to have received funds from a private Family Foundation and sponsors, both individual, families, and corporate, to present fireworks again in Sterne Park! Without their generosity we would not be able to provide the fireworks to the Littleton community.

The show will be “proximate fireworks”, or those used in close proximity to an audience. The display is specially regulated and managed to keep everyone safe while providing an excellent show. The best viewing of the show will be in the park, south of the playground.

Be sure to purchase water from the Littleton High School Girls Volleyball team fundraiser and Glow Necklaces – a WWW fundraiser. WWW and their volunteers are  the only authorized group to sell glow items at the event.
