"Take in the beautiful scenery of the University of Colorado Boulder campus. [Or visit] the Shakespeare Gardens with big, beautiful trees providing lots of shade on the grass. Flower beds ring the courtyard, each inspired by Shakespeare’s plays. (There may even be strolling minstrels!)" —In Good Taste Denver

75 minutes before showtime, our grounds come alive with picnickers. Bring your dinner with you to the Hellems Lawn and Shakespeare Gardens, open for picnicking with friends and family.
