Bring your family and celebrate the Fourth of July Rock Ledge style. Listen to the Pikes Peak Brass Band, historic music by Mark and Vance Gardner and Rex Rideout, and the “Strings and Things” dulcimer band. Play carnival games with your kids and learn how to play “Chicken Bingo”. Watch the Seven Falls Indian Dancers perform, enjoy some watermelon, and go on a wagon ride around the Ranch. Enjoy some delicious gelato or perhaps participate in a pie-eating contest. Witness historic speeches by General Palmer, President Abraham Lincoln, Susan B. Anthony, and Katharine Lee Bates. Bring a picnic blanket and feast upon some Fourth of July favorites like hotdogs, lemonade, and apple pie (available for purchase). Refresh yourselves with old-fashioned soda and popcorn from the Pop Shed and grab a souvenir from the General Store. There’s something fun for the whole family all day long!
Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site at Garden of the Gods stewards a diverse outdoor museum by engaging, inspiring, and educating guests with the cultural and agricultural stories of those who inhabited the Pikes Peak region from 1775-1909.
