The Palisade Peach Festival is this weekend, but it's not all that's going on in the state.  Let's see what we can look forward to doing this weekend in beautiful Colorado!

From the time John Petal Harlow tested the soil in Palisade and grew the first fruits on the Western Slope, Palisade Peaches have been in demand. Delicious peaches, and peach dishes highlight the festival. In its 50th year, the Palisade Peach Festival was one of the first agricultural festivals in the state. And the best.

Celebrating all things peach! Live music, great food and a ton of things for the kids to do. Head to Fort Collins on Saturday but get there early so you can catch the whole day's fun!

For the last 19 years, the Lafayette Peach Festival has been celebrating peaches and this year will be no different. Saturday, starting at 9, head to Lafayette and enjoy over 30,000 pounds of peaches, peach dishes and more. Food vendors, antique booths and more highlight the day.

Stages one and two of this professional bike race are held in Vail before moving to Denver for the completion of the race. Held at the same time is the Velorama festival of music and fun. If you enjoy live music and bike racing, you need to check this one out!

Gilpin County Fair Black Hawk

Rodeo, mutton bustin' and everything you come to expect from a county fair. Oh, and food. A lot of food.

Celebrate your inner monster by heading to Greeley for Monster Day! Roaming monsters in downtown Greeley, face painting, costume contests, and more highlight this event on Sunday, August 18. Check out Monster World and other attractions and events all day Sunday!
