Emma Crawford Coffin Races & Parade
In 1995, the Manitou Springs Chamber of Commerce started the first coffin races in the nation, in memory of a beloved member of Manitou Springs. In the years since, the races have grown into an often-copied-but-never-equaled Manitou Springs tradition.
The Emma Crawford Coffin Race & Parade will be returning this year on Saturday, October 29, 2022, in Manitou Springs, CO. Parade starts at noon, followed immediately by the races. In its 28th year, the Emma Coffin Crawford Race is expected to attract as many as 10,000 spectators to the small mountain town. Spectators are encouraged to arrive several hours early to allow time for travel and to beat the crowds.
Getting to the Emma Crawford Coffin Races is as easy as one, two, three.
