Step back in time and celebrate a piece of Colorado’s history during the free Fall Festival, hosted by Arapahoe County and held outside at the 150-year old 17 Mile House. This historic property served as an inn for pioneers traveling on wagon trains to Denver, and was a working farm for more than a century. There’s fun for the whole family. Pick out and purchase your favorite pumpkin and take a scenic hayride. Take a turn milking Bessie the Cow and visit her barnyard friends in the petting farm. Enjoy breakfast or lunch from some of Denver’s hottest food trucks. Try your hand at gold panning, learn more about the fine art of blacksmithing, tour the farmhouse, meet a local beekeeper and more, all while listening to live music by local bands. Local historians will be on-site to give guided tours and talk about the history of the property and its significance to the Old West. All ages with FREE admission. Pumpkins, food and beverage available for purchase. The festival runs rain or shine. 8181 S. Parker Rd. (between E-470 and Broncos Parkway), Centennial, 720-874-6743.
