Escape to Manitou Springs
Featured events & happenings
Manitou Springs Colorado Wine Fest
We call it the “Colorado” wine festival, because all you’ll find here is wine made in the state of Colorado! We celebrate local wineries and vendors with the great day in the park, complete with 3 live music artists and a bevy of food trucks and tasty treats to pair with your wine samples. Be sure to grab your ticket to sample all the delicious Colorado wines, meads, and glögg that will be offered, before they sell out! Volunteer to get FREE ENTRANCE to the Wine Fest!

There's something in the water
Maybe it’s the mountain air, or the natural mineral springs. It might be the open-air dining or that feeling of being nestled just at the foot of Pikes Peak. Whatever it is, we know that nature rejuvenates us, now more than ever.
For centuries people have been making trips here to taste the magic and mystery of Manitou’s healing waters. Come and experience the magic for yourself—we dare you.
Get out. Stay in.
Manitou is the perfect place to spread out in the great outdoors, then find a cozy spot to settle in with your friends or family. In fact, Goldilocks would love Manitou Springs: not too big and not too small—just right.
