Special Events


When: Sept. 30-Oct. 1 2016

Long before the Manitou Incline (and other things) were legal in Manitou Springs, the city was known for, well, springs. Early Manitou was the place to be if you were in need of rejuvenation and the naturally occurring bubbly mineral water was touted as quite the cure. Today you can find eight different springs throughout the city, each with their own unique flavor, carbonation and mineral concentration (including Lithium!). You can learn all about them at this weekend's Waterfest, a two-day exploration of the history, geology and benefits of the springs. Waterfest will also feature the Mayors Cup 5K, a treasure hunt, water Quidditch, water tasting, bike rides and yoga. Proceeds will benefit the Mineral Springs Foundation, Peak Living Project and the Balneology Association of North America. Friday and Saturday, various venues, Manitou Springs, price varies, Register at manitouwaterfest.org. — Bridgett Harris
