Live Life Wide Open

“Life Wide Open” is the unique way of life enjoyed by all Candelas community members. Every aspect of Candelas has been designed to deliver a comfortable, engaging and sustaining way of life for all ages. Depending on where you live in the community, your views and experiences will differ. The six distinctive villages of Candelas are named for their unique geographic setting. Each residential village offers its own brand of picturesque views of the surrounding landscape – views that are reflected in each village’s name. So whether it’s the inviting scene of a beautiful park, the expanse of a rugged canyon, or a sweeping vista of the Rocky Mountain range, every Candelas owner gets to choose the backdrop of their life.

A big part of living Life Wide Open is strapping on your hiking boots, running shoes or ski gear, and heading out into the wilderness for fun! Candelas offers six public City of Arvada parks that are no more than a half-mile away from every home. A total of 13.5 miles of hiking and biking trails meanders throughout Candelas and into more than 11,500 acres of nearby open space. With its location nestled in the foothills, Candelas provides easy access to living the ultimate Colorado lifestyle.

No matter if you are a young family or empty nesters, we have events throughout the year that cater to every interest. An on-site lifestyle director plans an array of activities throughout the year, with the goal to create lasting memories and bring the community together in a place that feels like home. The Town Center commercial space surrounding the Candelas neighborhood will eventually give residents shopping and dining options close to home – just an added perk on top of the already thriving culture you can experience all throughout the City of Arvada. There's something for everyone at Candelas!

Please contact Traci McDonald at or 720-625-8080 if you have any questions about the lifestyle program or amenities.

Get Involved!

There are so many ways to get involved in the lifestyle programming here at Candelas. With nearly 100 events per year, we are always looking for help to run events, plan events, and support events through sponsorship. Whether you live in Candelas and want to increase your reach in building meaningful connections with your neighbors, or you are a local business in the surrounding Denver Metro area wanting to expand your services to this fast-growing area of Arvada, Candelas has something for everyone. 


Do you own your own business or do you work for a company that wants to make more local connections throughout the Candelas and greater Arvada community? The Candelas lifestyle program is always looking for support to help make our events fun and engaging for everyone, and our goal is to build mutually beneficial relationships with our community partners! You can sponsor events through in-kind donations, monetary donations, or by purchasing entertainment or activities that will add to an event’s enjoyment, just to name a few ideas.

Most sponsors are also Candelas residents, and this is an essential piece of creating a successful and sustainable lifestyle program. This is done through meaningful partnerships created between CCMC and our community members. There are so many ways to become more involved in the lifestyle program through sponsorship! Contact your Lifestyle Director to learn more about our available advertising and sponsor packages.

Ambassadors and Volunteers

Do you have a volunteer spirit and would like to volunteer your time at events, or simply get more involved to help create what programs and activities are offered to our community? The Candelas Lifestyle program is always looking for support to help make our events fun and engaging for everyone, and with a small office staff, putting on large events can sometimes be a daunting task, so the more helping hands we can get, the better! You can volunteer for individual events, or join the Ambassador program to be in the loop of what’s to come and have a more continuous involvement from year to year. Contact your Lifestyle Director to learn more!
