This is my favorite HeidiTown giveaway because I love the Colorado Renaissance Festival. Ryan and I have been attended for nearly two decades together and Ryan’s been visiting since he was a kid. It’s a chance to escape reality for a day and enjoy a fantastical experience.
We like to arrive at the festival grounds when the doors open so as to buzz through the stores before the mid-day throngs arrive. Plus, parking is easier earlier in the day.
Once the place gets busy with sword wielding outlaws and busty lassies pushing baby strollers, we order hard cider, our drink of choice at Ren Fest, and start the second part of our day – people watching (there is no better place for it).
At some point we find food (turkey legs, of course) and continue the people watching portion of our day. Food and drink prices have increased very little over the years at Colorado Renaissance Festival, a nice bonus for families who attend en masse.
Eventually we catch a show or two (the Washing Well Wenches are still my favorite), enjoying another cider and then, once we’re a bit sunburnt and our feet are good and dusty, we head home.
This summer is special because the Colorado Renaissance Festival is celebrating its 40th anniversary and the party lasts nine weekends. Each weekend has a theme such as wine, ale or children, but my favorite is Opening Weekend. There’s an extra special magic and energy about Opening Weekend that occurs June 11-12 this year.
Colorado Renaissance Festival takes place every weekend from June 11-12 through August 6-7, 2016. Tickets are $20.50 for adults, $9 children (ages 5-12) and free for children under five.
However, this blog post represents your chance to win a four-pack of tickets to Colorado Renaissance Festival that I will send out to the winner in time for him/her to use the tickets for whatever weekend they wish.
