Territory Days in Old Colorado City
Every Memorial Day weekend, Territory Days comes to Old Colorado City in Colorado Springs. Territory Days began in 1975 as the “Rampart Range Sertoma Territory Days Parade and Buffalo Barbeque.” In 1976, the name was changed to Territory Days to commemorate Old Colorado City having become the first capitol of the Colorado Territory back in 1861. Territory Days has grown from a small neighborhood craft fair into a three-day street festival that now hosts over 180 craft, commercial, and food booths. Each year, between 80,000 and 150,000 guests enjoy this event
