All in good wine
Tell me about it
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!
Back for 2023, the Manitou Springs Colorado Wine Festival will be held on June 3 in Memorial Park, Manitou Springs. Hours are 11 am – 5 pm, last entry at 4 pm.

We know they wanna ride the shuttle…but please leave your four-legged family members at home. No pets are invited to enjoy the festival, but they’ll certainly be happy to see you when you get home!
We love our kids AND our wine, but our kids don’t love wine, so please call your parents, your sister, or your babysitter to watch the kiddos while you enjoy the festival. The festival is 21+ unless you have a DD ticket.
While we encourage you to use a ride share or have a designated driver friend, there are only limited designated driver tickets available. We suggest that they enjoy downtown Manitou Springs during festival hours! The festival is 21+ unless you have a DD ticket.
We hear you. If you feel like packing some sammies, snacks and a non-alcoholic beverage to nosh on during the event, go for it! We’ll be digging through your stuff at the entry gate though, just to make sure you don’t try to pack in more wine (we will have plenty) or a beer for your friend (this is a wine fest, after all). Sorry, but no wagons/carts are allowed into the event. We are looking into a wine valet option for 2022 so stay tuned!
