I have found that Craigslist is a great way to find open houses throughout metro Denver and outlying suburbs. Many weekend open houses are listed on Fridays on http://www.Craigslist.com.
Please call me if you are interested in relocating to Denver and I would be happy to show you attractive homes in your price range. Also, buying a home in Colorado is drastically different than in California where you are an escrow state and we are a funding at the table state.
Hope that helps you.

Where do you live where ALL houses are open on Sundays...as Denver in NOT like that.
Why do you want to look at open houses? Wouldn't you be better off getting pre-approved for a mortgage loan, and have a competent Realtor show you homes and home styles you liked near "where" you wanted to live - with the specific features you wanted?
Let me know if you have any questions!
Let me explain how open houses have helped me. We have made several cross country moves to areas we know zero about. I do my research on the internet, ask people's opinions, and check out neighborhoods to see what fits us. If you meet with an agent right off the bat (from my experience) they will try to quickly off load you into a new subdivision in BFE. Experienced that approach more than a couple times. That may or may not be where I want to be, but it will take time for me to decide that and I don't expect you to patiently wait while I do that. That could involve looking at hundreds of houses in dozens of surrounding suburban areas and downtown (I'm thorough).
I also am interviewing YOU agents! If I like your approach, you may be my agent. Yes, unlikely I will buy that house (2-4% I believe).
IF you find a quality Realtor, and work with that agent to hone your list of house "must haves" needs and wants, the Realtor can do all the work for you; greatly narrow the field to those homes that specifically meet your requirements, and show these to you, even if they are not held open on the weekend.
Hope this is helpful. The sites listed in other posts will give you many of the homes held open, and simply driving neighborhoods (a good idea anyway) to look for signs will be even better.
You can check the event calendar on denver.craigslist.org, or the open house link at http://www.postnewsads.com/openhouses/
But if you know the area in which you want to search, you can just drive around on either a Saturday or a Sunday and follow the signs.
Do you plan on being in the Denver area soon? I'd love to take you around. I also offer a wonderful MLS search tool which works really well for out-of-state buyers. It's free and comes with no obligation.
Give me a call so we can discuss in greater detail how I can help you find what you are looking for.
