Territory Days, one of Colorado Springs' largest and longest-standing street festivals is on tap this weekend, running 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday and 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday, on Colorado Avenue between 23rd and 27th streets.

This time-honored celebration commemorating the founding of Old Colorado City, the first territorial capitol of the region, has grown from a small neighborhood craft fair into a three-day street festival extravaganza, with 200 or more food, craft and commercial vendors. The historic district comes alive with live music, food, entertainment, a Cowboy Church service, toy train rides, gold panning, Wild West gunfight re-enactments, live blacksmithing, beer gardens and more food-on-a-stick than you can shake a stick at.

The Territory Days free concert series is headlined this year by country music recording artists Jon Pardi and Joel Crouse. Other acts include award-winning Native American musicians Brule, 101st Army Band, 6035, Brian Flynn Band, BJ Estares & Route 61, Exit West, The J Miller Band, Justus League, Megan Redmond, TheNocturnal Tomatoes, Radio London Family Elephant, Some Peoples' Kids, The Tent Show Kings, Tumbling Dice, The VooDoo Hawks and Whiskey Fingers.

Avoid parking and traffic hassles by taking the free shuttle from Coronado High School, 1590 W. Fillmore St., running every 15 minutes.
