Shep’s Depot Dog Days
Broomfield’s most famous canine gets a day in his honor each year. A stray dog known as Shep became a local celebrity in the 1950s, when tollbooth workers along what was then the Boulder-Denver Turnpike found Shep wandering around the tollbooth area. The event includes a Good Dog and a Shep Look-a-Like Contest.
“neverhome” was a walking tour of Zang Spur Park around the Broomfield Depot Museum, with site-specific performance by Control Group Productions. The route involves a ca. 3/4-mile walk along ADA compliant sidewalks and paths. The event was a partnership between Control Group Productions, the City & County of Broomfield’s Depot Museum, and the Friends of the Broomfield Depot Museum.
Escape the Museum
The year is 1936, the setting is the Broomfield Depot, and the problem is your missing brother, George. The last you heard, he was traveling as a hobo to Broomfield for work. You will have 60 minutes to solve puzzles and clues in a specific order to find out what happened to George. Bring your family, friends, co-workers, or anyone you know with excellent observation skills. All ages are welcome, but those under 13 must be accompanied by an adult.
