LARKSPUR – Thousands of visitors are heading to Southern Colorado for the highly anticipated Renaissance Festival this weekend. There will be sixteen days of family fun, food, and activities.

Artisans will be creating original works of art, and hundreds of cast members will be performing, baking and entertaining guests. Plus, you can’t forget about the food! You’ll find roasted turkey legs, steak on a stake and fresh baked goods.

All this fun is also going to have a big impact on traffic in the area! With more than 200,000 people coming this way expect some delays on the gap.

CDOT is creating what they call an “auxiliary lane” on the shoulder of the gap, which will just be open on the weekends the festival takes place.

Dates are as follows:
June 15-16, 22-23, 29-30
July 6-7, 13-14, 20-21, 27-28
August 3-4 2019

They’re open the next 8 weekends rain or shine from 10:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
