The Big Aspen Happnin’ Fall Festival

September 28 - September 30

Big Aspen Happnin' Fall Festival in Cripple Creek, Colorado

We already know there’s no better place to see the golden aspen leaves than on the roads to Cripple Creek. So why not add onto the spectacle? There will be a HUGE street party with an entire city block of inflatable fun, featuring a massive slide, a gigantic obstacle course, bounce houses, live music, plenty of street vendors and art inspired by Mother Nature’s fine fall handiwork. Don’t miss the 3rd Annual Big Aspen Happnin’!
