The historic district on Colorado Avenue between 23rd Street and 27th Street will come alive with live music, food, fun and entertainment for the entire family. One of the state’s largest craft vendor fairs is highlighted with features including pony rides, kids play area, petting zoo, Cowboy Church Service, toy train rides, gold panning, wild west gunfight re-enactments, live blacksmithing, period costumed characters, live birds of prey, native American dancers, quick draw competition, and two beer gardens with live music running all three days.
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.
It began as a merchant organized barbecue & parade and has grown into a three-day street festival, which now hosts 200 food, craft, and commercial booths. Between 80,000 and 140,000 guests (depending on weather) enjoy this event every Memorial Day weekend.
