In light of the global COVID-19 pandemic, Town Staff have been working hard to create a family-friendly event to celebrate the community while also keeping residents safe and healthy. The Town of Bennett is excited to announce several events for Bennett Days 2020, the majority of which will be held on Saturday September 12th, 2020.
Every summer the Town of Bennett hosts a State of the Town to celebrate our community and stakeholders and to highlight current and past Town projects.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the State of the Town will be held virtually this year through a series of videos. Throughout the week, we will be sharing videos with updates from our Mayor and Bennett staff.
The Bennett Arts Council and Unincorporated Arapahoe County Economic Development will be hosting six free concerts in the months on July, August and September.

If you missed the live stream, you can still watch the concert here.
