Covid Policy Update -- For the health and safety of our students, our teachers, their families, and all our adult participants at After Dark, we are now requiring proof of covid vaccination or verification of a negative covid test taken within 72 hours of the event to attend After Dark.

This requirement aligns with existing policy at Jeffco Public Schools for all its extracurricular activities and sports. Moreover, it aligns with the policy adopted to ensure the health and safety of students/teachers attending Outdoor Lab.

If you are no longer able to attend or comfortable attending due to the new requirements, we will gladly refund your ticket order.

"I love this event because it brings all people together- those that know Outdoor Lab and those that don't. It's like everyone can see how important it is for this community and share in the vision of keeping it alive." - Anna, Outdoor Lab Alum and Jefferson County native

A "not-so-traditional" nonprofit annual fundraiser (and FRIENDraiser), celebrating the Outdoor Lab Foundation and program.

This is a night of merriment and celebration, complete with live music, local food, signature cocktails, and a live and silent auction.
