Leave the Fireworks to the Professionals
Fireworks are illegal in the Town of Wellington and the State of Colorado. Fireworks cause thousands of injuries, disrupt your neighbors, scare animals, and could cost you a large fine.

Enjoying the public display of fireworks is more safe and legal!

To report the illegal use of fireworks please contact Larimer County Sherrif at (970) 416-1985. As always, if you are experiencing an emergency, call 911
Local Business Spotlight
Old Colorado Brewing Co
The original Old Colorado Brewing Company opened in Fort Collins in 1989, the first craft brewery in Northern Colorado. It re-opened business in Wellington in February 2016, becoming the first craft brewery in Wellington.

Our beer recipes have been passed down through generations. Our business is women majority owned and operated. Our most popular beer, Old Joe Cream Ale, is over a 30-year-old recipe. We love our community and often get involved in charitable events to benefit our town.

We are a part of the Wellington Brewfest and host the Wellington Fun Run, both benefiting the Wellington Main Streets Program.
Two Owls Counseling
Two Owls Counseling has served Wellington for three years. I specialize in grief, anxiety and depression.

Wellington is a great place to live! I love the small town feel but with the restaurants, gyms, and breweries of a big city.
The Town of Wellington is committed to supporting our local businesses. We would like to build awareness of our businesses and encourage residents to “Think Wellington First” when purchasing goods and services. Each month we will spotlight 1-2 locally-owned businesses, restaurants, and shops in our E-Newsletter. Businesses who are interested in participating can complete our online form with the button below.
Thistle has been a downtown staple since 2017 when we took over the centuries old brick building by the Wellington Hotel. For nearly 5 years, we've been bringing unique gifts, homemade goods and fashion to downtown Wellington.

I started Thistle to expand on my love of art, design and humor and to bring something to Wellington that it didn't have at the time. I feel Thistle is unique because of the fun, snarky items and friendly atmosphere. Wellington loves humor and we've found those are our most popular items along with wax melts and jewelry. I love being a part of the community for the camaraderie and friendly faces. Wellington has so much potential and I think we will become a hub for artists and community engagement if we can keep updating the town.
