It’s another sign that the summer is quickly coming and going – the Colorado Renaissance Festival is over again. If you didn’t get a chance to catch the fair this year, here’s a little video for you to see what you missed!
The Colorado Renaissance Festival has become a yearly tradition in our family as well as hundreds of others in Colorado. Tucked away in the wooded hills of Larkspur, CO, the festival brings out the best in what a good Renaissance festival should be – entertainment, shopping, mischief and all sorts of creative, quirky and fun loving people getting together. The village boasts about 40 acres of a 16th century Tudor style village, complete with blacksmiths, Gypsy merchants, elephant rides and more. Many people dress in a Renaissance period fashion, but you’ll find plenty of pirates, vikings, knights and other colorful characters at the fair. If you don’t have a costume, there’s rentals available and plenty of garb available for sale inside the village.
There’s a wide variety of shopping available from local and national artisans and craft makers – things from leather boots to steel swords to aroma candles await! There’s also abundant food and drink to fill your belly with merriment – in my humble opinion no trip to the Colorado Renaissance Festival is complete without a smoked turkey drumstick, pickle and cheesecake on a stick! There’s also beer, wine and mead available for the lushes among us. 🙂 Among the colorful costumes and lively entertainment, there are also several areas and programs devoted to wildlife education, such as the Big Cat show and birds of prey house. Typing up this article makes me sad because it’s a whole year I will have to wait until the 2018 festival!
The festival is unfortunately over for the year but you’ll be able to catch it in 2018, starting the first weekend of June.
