Gatherings of more than 10 people are still prohibited in non-residential public and private areas, including outdoor pavilions. Exceptions include farmer’s markets and competitive events such as races and endurance events, which are allowed as long as physical distancing is maintained. Specific to races, no more than 10 people can be gathered at a time, therefore race directors must implement staggered start times and make efforts to prevent gatherings at starts and finishes.
Large pavilions that can accommodate physical distancing requirements can now be reserved to groups of 10 people or less. This includes Cheyenne Cañon Mesa, Memorial Park Pavilion Complex, Monument Valley Park, Palmer Park (Lazy Land, Council Grounds and Youth Camp only) and Venezia Park.
Food vendors at farmers markets, which are designated as critical retail, are allowed as long as they follow public health guidelines. The Colorado Farm & Art Market is scheduled to open as planned on June 10 in Alamo Square Park, just outside of the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum. Organizers of the farmer’s market in Bancroft Park, located in Old Colorado City, have moved its start date to July 11.
Colorado Springs is a city that celebrates special events. From major conventions and international sporting events to community-based festivals, parades and athletic activities, the City of Colorado Springs is proud to host hundreds of events each year.
