Visiting Southern Colorado & Four Corners | Fall 2014

Communities across southern Colorado invite visitors and residents to experience an array of events and activities in perfect weather this season. Pueblo, less than 45 minutes south of Colorado Springs, finds foodies gathering for a longstanding tradition on September 19th and 20th. Presented by Loaf ‘N Jug, the 20th Annual Chile & Frijoles Festival fills the Union Avenue Historic District with a farmers' market, chile roasting, arts and crafts, kids' activities, and live music – all in celebration of Pueblo’s prolific pepper crops.

Just over 45 minutes to the west, Canon City and the Royal Gorge region boast a farmers’ market of their own, every Tuesday through the end of September. Held at Veterans Park on Tuesdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., the Canon City Farmers’ Market offers the finest locally grown, seasonal produce, “just like Granny used to grow!” Each week, there are also a number of handpicked artists and craft makers displaying and selling their creations.

It’s the perfect time of year to get outdoors in southern Colorado and visitors of Monte Vista and Alamosa enjoy convenient access to Great Sand Dunes National Park, where exciting adventures abound. From hiking Mount Herald, horseback riding through several lake trails, and sledding the dunes in the 30-square-mile dune field, to hands-on, educational experiences in the Discovery Room in the Visitor Center, the options are virtually limitless and this is the season for the most ideal conditions.

Cortez and Durango serve as ideal base camps for outdoor enthusiasts looking to experience the rugged terrain and rich history of Mesa Verde National Park. On September 27th, the park challenges adventures with the 2014 Wetherill Bike & Hike. Bike up the tram road and hike the rest of the way to explore the ancient Long House and Step House cliff dwellings.

Colorado Springs, in the heart of the state, offers enlightening fun for the whole family, when venues all across town open up for the 2014 Colorado Springs Science Festival, October 11th through 19th. Of the many events, ones not to miss include Science on the Screen, with screenings held in the West Wing Conference Room at the US Olympic Training Center, and the Smartphone SCVNGR Hunt, which spans the downtown area.
