Festival Features


FEED YOUR MIND
Families can journey back to the roots of Colorado and have fun learning about the state's pioneer past, nature, and environment. In the Festival of Mountain and Plain area, featured artisans will demonstrate Navajo weaving and culture, spinning, rug braiding, lace crocheting, and felting, along with the popular blacksmith demonstration.


THE BABY OASIS, A CONVENIENCE AREA FOR MOMS & FAMILIES

Nursing mothers and families can visit the Baby Oasis presented by ColoradoKids.com, a convenient area located in the KidZone for parents to nurse, change diapers, and relax in a private environment complete with a rocking chair. An assortment of supplies will be provided, including diapers and baby wipes.


HAVE A KID-SIZED PORTION OF SOMETHING TASTY & EXOTIC

Kid-friendly food vendors will be located along the perimeter of the KidZone selling hot dogs, pretzels, popcorn, and more. A Taste of Colorado is also an opportunity for parents to encourage their children to try new foods from places like the Middle East, Japan, Poland, India, and the Caribbean, as many of the restaurants offer "taste-sized" portions for one to three tickets.
