The fall festival season kicks off Labor Day weekend with the 98th Annual Windsor Harvest Festival, happening Saturday, Aug. 31 through Monday, Sept. 2. The three-day festival is packed with family-friendly events including hot air balloon launches, a mud volleyball tournament, classic car show, vendor booths and free live-entertainment scheduled throughout the weekend.

Although it’s not an all-inclusive list of everything that’s happening, here’s a sampling of what some folks might enjoy:

  • The event kicks off early Saturday and Sunday morning with hot air balloon launches at 6:30 a.m., weather permitting. Balloons will depart from Eastman Park at 7th Street and Eastman Park Drive.
  • Saturday ends with an All-Town BBQ, a live musical concert at Windsor Lake, and fireworks. Concert headliner Ross Ellis is scheduled to start at 8 p.m. Fireworks are scheduled to begin shortly after 9 p.m.
  • On both Sunday and Monday, over 150 vendor booths, a beer garden, family-friendly games, horse-drawn carriage rides, free live musical entertainment and more are scheduled to take place at Windsor’s Main Park, 300 Locust St., from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Sunday includes the Windsor Cruise-In Car Show from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and an outdoor movie in the park at 8 p.m. Both are free to attend and take place at Eastman Park. The car show is sponsored by ACE (Auto Collision Experts), Bank of Colorado, Ehrlich Toyota, Mark’s Funeral Home, Show Shine Detailing and State Farm Insurance – Heidi Washburn.
  • Sunday also includes a Doggie Dip at Chimney Park Pool, 425 Chimney Park Dr., from 1 to 3 p.m. The cost is $5 per dog. Dogs must be fully vaccinated. Doggie Dip is sponsored by Garden Valley Vet Hospital.
  • Monday—the final day of the festival—begins with the Windsor Harvest Festival Parade at 9 a.m. The parade begins near Walnut and 3rd Street and heads from Walnut to 7th Street, then south on 7th Street to Eastman Park Drive.
  • Live entertainment, booths, games and more continue throughout Monday with the event ending at 5 p.m.

Event organizers have always relied on volunteers to make the weekend run smoothly. This year, there will be additional emphasis placed on recruiting parade volunteers to help monitor the route.
