Elitch Gardens Theme & Water Park
2000 Elitch Cir, Denver, CO 80204

Located in the heart of Denver and celebrating 130 years of fun, Elitch Gardens is Colorado’s only world-class combination theme and water park.  For one night only, Chicken Fight Festival will be taking over the park for our guests only!  From I-25, go south on Speer Boulevard (Exit Speer South) then turn right onto Elitch Circle.


Guests may arrive via RTD bus or Light Rail. Both options have stops at Elitch Gardens.


While we highly suggest you take Public Transit/RTD or rideshare, paid parking at Elitch Gardens will be available.

Chicken Fight Festival will happen rain, snow or shine.

It is never a bad idea to bring a rain jacket or layers depending on the weather report. Small bags approximately 15″ and smaller will be searched and allowed in.  Please pack lightly so we can get you into the festival as fast as possible!
