Colorado Renaissance Festival approaches final weekends

Festival transports people to village inspired by history and magic

Posted

The Colorado Renaissance Festival, which runs for eight weekends at its Larkspur location, has three remaining weekends in this year’s schedule before the village modeled after 16th century England closes its gates. The festival is open from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, rain or shine, and transports eventgoers to a town inspired by history and fantasy.

John Bryan, who plays King Henry at the festival, and Beth Telford, who plays Queen Anne, said new and old acts keep visitors entertained as they wander through the village.

“It’s just a magical place to be,” Bryan said. “We draw people back in time...”

The event features variety acts on stages throughout the grounds, vendors, artisans, food and drink. Popular shows include live jousting and the hypnotist. Many who attend arrive in costume.

The festival is held at 650 W. Perry Park Ave. For more information, visit coloradorenaissance.com.
