34th Annual Champagne Cascade, benefiting Make-A-Wish Colorado

November 13th, 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

This iconic Denver event will warm your holiday spirit as it launches with master swordsmen using Napoleonic sabers to sever the bottlenecks of Moet Champagne magnums. The champagne is then poured into the uppermost glass of a two-story high, 5,000+ glass pyramid. As the champagne is poured, it cascades into the glasses below, creating a stunning display of streaming fizz while a cheering crowd lines all levels on our holiday-adorned Atrium Lobby. Special guests will be part of the show, as well as Santa Claus, and some other fun surprises. Proceeds benefit Make-A-Wish Colorado.
