Travel through time and enter the magical realm of dragons and fairies, knights and trolls, royalty and wenches! Join hundreds of performers, artisans, and costumed entertainers for a day filled with song and dance, laughter, amusement, and excitement.
The Colorado Renaissance Festival returns to Larkspur this summer for eight spectacular weekends! This year is the Festival's 44th Anniversary, and they've got a great lineup of returning acts — including fan favorites like the Joust, Washing Well Wenches, The London Broil, and Celtic Legacy — as well as new performers!
The Joust is the highlight of the festival, with a Tournament of Skill, a Tournament of Arms, and Trial by Combat scheduled throughout the day! Everyone in the audience really gets into cheering for "their" knight and booing at all the others!
The London Broil is a trio of jugglers who are both skilled and entertaining. They'll have you laughing out loud through the entire show!
The Kamikaze Fireflies are part comedy, part circus. You may have seen them several years ago on America's Got Talent. They are even better when you see them live at the Festival.
Celtic Legacy plays rock songs with bagpipes, drums, and a guitar! These guys are so fun and energetic, you'll want to watch and listen to them all day!
The Washing Well Wenches have a hilarious show with LOADS (see what I did there?) of audience interaction and participation.
NEW! Master Falconer Ash Cary of Knightwings presents the natural behaviors of owls, hawks, and falcons and their impact on the ecosystem.
NEW! Zilch the Torysteller has been “peaching teople how to leak in a spifferent danguage” for over four decades. He takes classic tales and utterly mangles them historically and hysterically. Hear him render stories like “Loldigocks and the Bee Threars,” “Rindercella,” and Spilliam Wakeshear’s classic “Jomeo and Ruliet.”
Plus MANY, MANY more! Musicians, a hypnotist, fire-breathers, dancers, acrobats, singers, and a living fountain are just a few of the other Renaissance variety acts you'll discover.

Bring sunscreen, a spray bottle (for misting yourself), and an empty reusable or factory-sealed disposable water bottle. There are water fountains near the privies (bathrooms), so you can refill your misting and water bottles as needed.
