High Plains Comedy Festival
Bigtop has been a premier sponsor and promoter of HPCF as long as it’s been around. Founded in 2013 by Denver comedian/writer Adam Cayton-Holland, the Festival features a mix of local and national comics performing in venues throughout the city—with a special emphasis on the historic Baker neighborhood surrounding South Broadway. High Plains has quickly gained a reputation as one of the most talent-packed and fun-filled festivals in the country. It now stands as the biggest and the best independent comedy festival in the US.
The Chief Bicycle & Comedy Festival
From the ground-floor, Bigtop has helped build the Chief as a premiere alternate comedy fest. Founded in 2019 with the concept of bringing comedians from Chicago and Los Angeles via locomotive to Trinidad for a weekend of bicycling and comedy activities, has grown into a multi-state festival between Trinidad, CO and Raton, NM; with weekend performances ON THE TRAIN between the two. Previous headliners include Beth Stelling, Eddie Pepitone, David Gborie, and Emma Arnold.
