Carnation Festival

The party, The Wheat Ridge Carnation Festival, is nearing the half-century mark – and is one of the longest-running festivals in Colorado. The festival derives its name from the post-World War II period when Wheat Ridge was home to a thriving carnation industry. The last carnation grower in Wheat Ridge phased out their operation in 2008. Like so many traditions, occasions and festivals, finding the exact origins of the festival and historical specifics are as steeped in unknowns as the carnation flower itself. So many of the city’s founders and festival originators have passed – but their legacy continues. The festival is happening August 10-12, 2018, at Anderson Park (44th AVE & FIELD ST, WHEAT RIDGE, CO).
