EVENTFUL EVENTS: TERRITORY DAYS May 25-27
Territory Days began in 1975 as the “Rampart Range Sertoma Territory Days Parade and Buffalo Barbecue”. In 1976 the name was changed to Territory Days to commemorate “Colorado City” (now known as Old Colorado City) as the first capitol of the Colorado Territory in 1861. Territory Days began as a merchant organized barbecue and parade and has grown into a three-day street festival which now hosts 200 craft, commercial and food booths. Between 80,000 and 140,000 guests, (depending on the weather), enjoy this event every Memorial weekend. The historic district on Colorado Avenue between 23rd Street and 27th Street (only 12 blocks from Holden House) will come alive with live music, food, fun and entertainment. One of the state’s largest craft vendor fairs is highlighted with features including gold panning, live blacksmithing, period costumed characters, live birds of prey, native American dancers, and two beer gardens with live music running all three days.
