It’s summertime and that means the Colorado Renaissance Festival in Larkspur is in full swing. Ladies, lords, swordsman, wenches and peasants are gathering under the trees to celebrate all things medieval at one of Colorado’s best and longest produced festivals. It’s the 39th season of Colorado Renaissance Festival, an event that employs hundreds of talented folks who are there to make sure that YOU have the best experience possible while visiting the realm.
There are eight themed weekends planned, three of which are already in the history books. Upcoming weekends include Children’s Weekend (July 4-5), Wine Revelry (July 11-12), Love & Romance (July 18-19), Music & Dance Festival (July 25-26) and Fare Thee Well & Mardi Gras Style Carnivale (August 1-2). We are aiming to attend on Music & Dance weekend, a celebration of Celtic musicians featuring belly dance troupes, Irish dance groups and pipe bands. The super high energy band, Celtic Legacy will be featured this weekend. My husband, who grew up in Littleton, has been attending the Colorado Renaissance Festival all his life and we rarely miss a season, and I know many of you are the same.
We get to the festival when the gates open because we enjoy being greeted by the Royal Court and we enjoy shopping before the crowds thicken. When the festival grounds start to get crowded it’s time for us to kick back with a cold hard cider and find a show or two to watch. We love tasting a variety of different food items at the festival including artichoke dipped in hot butter, meat on a stick, turkey legs and we always share a cold pickle. This week, you have the chance to win FOUR tickets to the Colorado Renaissance Festival from HeidiTown.com.
In the comment section just tell me your favorite thing about this festival and you’ll be entered. If you’ve never been, tell me why you want to go. The winner will be chosen at random on Friday, July 3, 2015 at 3 p.m. Because of the holiday weekend, I will give the winner through Monday evening to respond before contacting the runner up. Good luck!
