Larkspur is a tiny town of less than two hundred people in Douglas County. It’s situated between Denver and Colorado Springs on Highway I-25.
It’s most known for it’s annual festival, the Colorado Renaissance Festival, which runs every weekend during the heart of the summer.
A post office was founded in Larkspur in 1871. The town was named for the plethora of larkspur, a flower found by the original town site. Larkspur was incorporated in 1979.
