There is so much to celebrate in Mesa Verde Country. Many of our festivals reflect our cultural ties with the archaeology and Native Culture of the area and link the past to the present. Others take to the skies, whether looking for birds or ascending in balloons.
Some festivals appeal to our taste buds, be it gourmet or beer fests, while others appeal to our artistic tastes through music, art, and drama. Our spectacular parks fill on weekends with antique cars, arts and crafts vendors, or fireworks celebrations. Cowboys and the western lifestyle are also a big part of our celebrations, and rodeos and the county fair provide that Old West Experience.
