Our Prairie Harvest Fest Kicked Off All Things Autumn!

Pumpkins and hayrides and dancing, oh my!

Painted Prairie’s third annual Harvest Fest was one for the books, as we kicked off fall with a day full of fun!

We enjoyed a sprawling Artisan Market with some of our favorite vendors, including Fat Cat Ceramics, your newest obsession, crafting gorgeous hand-spun pottery, and Woven in Wild, funky handmade macrame, with a side of hippie glam jewelry, just to name a couple!

This year our Alice and Wonderland characters scattered throughout Periwinkle Park and along Orleans Street to test out our littlest Prairie guests’ trivia knowledge! Each character provided a punch to their punch cards, with a yummy candy prize at the end. 

The Cheshire Cat tried to stump our guests with riddles all day, but our guests got the upper hand.

Denver’s hottest band, Funkiphino, entertained the crowd, ensuring our dancing feet didn’t stop all afternoon long! The sounds of this fan-favorite funk group boosted our energy and made for the perfect soundtrack for the day. 

Funkiphino played to a great turnout at Periwinkle Park.

Giant games like Connect Four and Jenga provided some exciting competition, while those looking for something a little more mellow enjoyed frolicking in the pumpkin patch.

Those looking for a fresh and fun way to tour the neighborhood took part in an old-fashioned hayride, passing through all of Painted Prairie’s pocket parks and model homes.

Our guests worked up quite an appetite, enjoying all of the festivities! Luckily we had some of Denver’s most delicious food trucks in attendance! Guests enjoyed tasty eats from Walking Taco Company, Uncle Dave’s BBQ, and White Rabbit Coffee after enjoying some groovy tunes and perusing the artisan market.

White Rabbit Coffee Co. kept the crowd going with its delicious coffees.

Our newest home models from David Weekley and Parkwood Homes were the stars of the show, with potential new Painted Prairie residents filtering in and out throughout the day, discovering reasons why our community is such a coveted place to live. 

David Weekley Homes opened its newest model, The Sloan, at 21005 E. 61st Drive, Aurora, CO. A gorgeous 2,300 square foot home featuring three to five bedrooms, two to three full baths, one-half bath, and a two-car garage. 

Parkwood Homes, a brand new builder to the community, debuted its first model, The Chelsea, at 21275 East 61st Drive, Aurora, CO 80019. Boasting a rooftop deck, a carriage house perfect for a home office or guest hideaway, and many more traditionally modern finishes, this model is a gorgeous addition to the neighborhood.

Remington and Berkeley Homes’ brand new sales trailers were also open and sharing what’s to come in the Painted Prairie community from these incredible local builders. (Now open at 6286 E. 62nd Drive and 6286 Lisbon St. in Aurora, CO.)

High Point Academy dancers performed for the crowd.

Thank you to all who came out to celebrate our favorite event of the year, checked out our latest model homes and sales trailers, and joined us to ring in the new season! If you have photos from the event, please tag us at @paintedprairieco on Instagram and Facebook!

Resident Testimonials

Johann Duran

Once we heard of Painted Prairie in 2021, we were hooked! We loved the diversity of the community, the open space, and everything else it has to offer. Our house has very rapidly turned into a home. We actually met some of our closest friends at a Painted Prairie event.

Jacci Cradle

Painted Prairie has become a place that feels like home for my family because of the strong sense of community and the diverse and inclusive atmosphere. It’s a place where we can connect with neighbors, support local businesses, and truly feel like we belong. The shared values of unity, diversity, and sustainability in the community align with what our family holds dear. It’s a place where children can thrive, and we can contribute positively to the community.

Being an active community while bringing us together on the different events throughout the year. We have been fortunate to enjoy the farmers markets, the neighborhood BBQ, the pancake breakfast, the family painting class, movies at the park and the Fall Festival! Our son and dog also love all the parks!
