*Disclosure: I was provided free tickets to the festival.
A few weeks ago I told you about the Colorado Renaissance Festival. If you don’t remember me posting about it you can actually check out my post. Well this past weekend, mommy, me and my sister Krxssy went to the Renaissance Festival to experience what it was about. Located in Larkspur Colorado, it took us approximately 45 minutes to get there from Colorado Springs. It was most certainly different from anything that I’ve ever experienced before, and we felt like we stepped back in time for the few hours we were there. The costumes were amazing and I surely tried taking everything in.
From the moment you step into the entrance you are totally engulfed in a whole new time. One that’s filled with beauty and of course charm. I now know what I want to be at Halloween. I want to be one of these people from the olden days. Even mommy got in on the fun!
I want to share with you some of the photos that I took. Now if you don’t have a costume there was somewhere for you to rent one. Mommy didn’t think that I needed one so unfortunately for me I didn’t get one.
The first thing you’re going to want to do once you’re inside is grab a festival guide. It lists all the activities and the times and also the location of every thing. You are most definitely going to want to know where the Privvies are.
One of the highlights of our visit was the Puke and Snot show. It was totally hilarious. While some of the jokes were way over my head I did enjoy hearing the laughter coming from everyone around me. It was an amazing act I would recommend you seeing it if you go.
There are a few other acts including the Washer Wrench’s Stage who had the crowd in an uproar of laughter and the music found at the Pirates Pub.
So I bet you’re wondering about food. Well there was lots to eat as well including getting some Royal Nuts which consisted of a variety of nut products. My sister thought was really hilarious and couldn’t stop laughing, I still don’t get it but maybe you do. There was also lots to drink including pop for us little ones and ale for the grown ups.
Here’s something you should know. Please bring cash. Since credit cards were recently invented there is no machines to take your purchase.
Don’t think this is just enjoyment for the adults. There are lots for the little ones to do too, such as riding an elephant. I didn’t get to ride since I was slightly afraid but maybe next year I’ll get to do so. Everything at the fair is man powered, even the rides which looked super fun!
With so much to see and do I recommend planning to spend quite a few hours here. You most certainly won’t be disappointed.
The Colorado Renaissance Festival has been around for 38 years and it’s running for 8 consecutive weekends. Each weekend there’s a different theme and the week we went was actually the wine tasting week.
If you’re visiting in Colorado and would love to go, there is still 3 weekends left. One thing I have to warn you about is parking. While it’s free be sure to get there early because the early bird gets the worm, or in this case, the best parking spot closest to the entrance. Here is the address for those wanting to visit:
650 W. Perry Park Ave.
Larkspur, CO 80118
Tickets are $16.95 if purchased online and $19.95 at the gate for ages 12+
Children ages 5 – 12 : $8 online and $9 at the gate.
Use our coupon and get a free child ticket for any adult ticket purchased.
I sure had a lot of fun and maybe this is something I’ll be able to experience again next year. After all how often does one get to climb up the leg of a Pirate?
