Community Events

Commerce City organizes several community events each year. They are great way to get out, give back, meet your neighbors or just enjoy the community spirit!

Annual Highlights


Spread the Love

Each February the Spread the Love campaign encourages the donation of peanut butter and jelly jars that are then distributed to local food banks. During the 2017 campaign a grand total of 1,483 jars were collected!
