This event benefits the ranch! Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site is a living history museum and farm located at Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Dedicated to the historic preservation of the Pikes Peak region, the City of Colorado Springs purchased the site in 1968 to prevent further development of the Camp Creek Valley. The site was registered to the National Registry of Historic Places and opened to the public in 1979. Throughout the year, the ranch offers a diverse array of interactive programming for all ages to learn and experience the rich history of this beautiful valley.

Members of Rock Ledge Ranch are granted FREE admission to the Garden of the Gods Art Festival. Enjoy their wonderful programming throughout the year, plus complimentary admission to our show. Become a member!
