We’ve been visiting the Colorado Renaissance Festival for many, many years. In fact, my husband’s been visiting the realm since he was just a kid. It’s one of our favorite summer excursions. At the end of the day we’re hot, covered in dust and turkey leg grease, but we’re happy.
Colorado Renaissance Festival is an outstanding production and I’ve pointed to this fest as an example that should be followed by other organizations wishing to put together a top notch event. It’s got it all; a well-planned layout, ambiance galore and authenticity. Okay, they aren’t real castles, but it’s as close as you’re get here in Colorado.
Now I know that most of you aren’t going to read any of this… you’re are just going to scroll down to the bottom of the post to figure out how to enter the contest, so I decided to share a bunch of pictures from our escapades at last year’s Colorado Renaissance Festival before telling you how to enter. 🙂
If you like castles and fairies, this is the festival for you.
Do not give this guy your shoe. You’ve been warned.
There’s this game called Tomato Justice & you should totally play. 🙂
Bring spending money! Nice guys like this one would love to sell you something awesome.
Be prepared to people watch. The Colorado Renaissance Festival is my favorite spot for people watching in Colorado.
Case in point.
Eating a turkey leg is mandatory at Colorado Renaissance Festival. Okay, not mandatory, but a very good idea.
You are never too old to swing.
But you are probably too old for this.
Ponies are for sissies. Ride a llama!
Little boys love swordplay.
Big boys like swordplay too. 🙂
It is entirely possible that you will run across a wizard having a conversation with a fairy over a cigarette at the Colorado Renaissance Festival.
You may be struck by the intense desire to dance, so you should dance.
Your stroll may be interrupted by a parade of royals. Feel free to take a knee or complain about taxes.
You will discover that fairies are real.
Okay. I’ll stop posting photos now and let you enter the contest.
