The 2020 Libertarian Party of Colorado Convention was an annual convention for the Libertarian Party of Colorado. It was initially scheduled to be held from April 3-5 2020 at the Hotel Colorado in Glenwood Springs.[1]

The convention site was relocated to the Sheridan Hotel in Lakewood, Colorado due to venue restrictions in place at the original site due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.[2]

Following additional restrictions on public gatherings due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the convention was cancelled and was instead replaced with a special convention for conducting party business and party nominations.[3] The convention and following board meeting will be available remotely. Check event details at Media:https://lpcolorado.org/event/lpco-board-meeting-2020-04-13/ at 6pm on April 13, 2020.
