At Waterfest, you will learn about the magical waters that lie beneath our community and around our state. Leading mineral water experts will engage with attendees to explore the geology, history, hydrology and culture of mineral water used around the state, region, and globe.
Locally, since 1987 the Mineral Springs Foundation in partnership with the City of Manitou Springs have been the primary stewards of our eight beloved cold mineral springs. Thanks to the vision and leadership that created the Sunwater Spa, we are delighted to once again be able to soak in our waters (the last soaking baths closed in the 1980's).
Mayor's Cup 5K run, treasure hunt and mineral springs tour, great local food, shopping, history museum, swimming pool, hiking, biking, local parks...
Hiking, biking, local galleries, fountain creek, Pikes Peak cog railway, Cliff Dwellings, Garden of the Gods park and SO MUCH MORE!
Come learn about the many the many uses of mineral water!
