Event Information


The Rocky Mountain Down Syndrome Association (RMDSA) invites you to join us and our family of thousands of friends and supporters for a day of fun, awareness, dancing, games, and so much more this September 28th at City Park in Denver.

“Chances are you either know someone personally that has Down syndrome, or know someone that does.  RMDSA continues to strive to serve the needs of those living with Down syndrome and their loved ones and caregivers.  People from around the Rocky mountain region depend upon RMDSA to help them navigate the trying times that may accompany the diagnosis that a parent is expecting a child with Down syndrome.  In such cases, RMDSA is that sympathetic listening ear and voice of reason and calm.  It is not too much to say; we give hope to people in need.  By supporting our work you are ensuring that people with Down syndrome have the opportunity to live independently, gain meaningful employment, have access to post-secondary education programs, and lead typical lives.  When given the chance and the resources to succeed, most people with Down syndrome do just that, succeed.  Help us serve the thousands of people in the rocky mountain region with Down syndrome and help them live the life they deserve.  And remember, with us, you are family.”


  The mission of the Rocky Mountain Down Syndrome Association is to assure inclusion and enhance independence of people with Down syndrome. We achieve this by providing education, resources, and support in partnership with individuals, families, professionals, and the community.

You must have a placard and one car per family will be allowed to park at the museum. There is on street parking available in the neighborhood and limited parking at the zoo.

 New this year, is free parking at East High with shuttle service to the park. We highly recommend this option.
