Featuring high quality artwork, a friendly atmosphere,
a gorgeous setting adjacent to Clear Creek,
and lots of complimentary and lively activities happening throughout
downtown Golden, the Golden Fine Arts
Festival is a summertime favorite for both locals and visitors alike.
The Festival is a juried show and features
more than 130 artists in a variety of
media, including ceramic arts, fiber arts,
glass, jewelry, mixed media, painting, photography,
sculpture and 2D.
Prizes will be awarded to
artists in these nine categories and cash awards total more than
$1,800. The Festival is sponsored by the
Golden Chamber of Commerce.
This year’s featured artwork is titled Survivors by Carolyn Miller, and
will be featured on the
commemorative poster for sale at the Festival. Carolyn
is a Denver artist, which is
appropriate since a majority of artists at this year’s
show are from Colorado. Booths are staffed
by the artists themselves so be sure to say hello.
There is no admission fee and the Festival features
live music and horse-drawn carriage
rides through historic Golden. For younger art lovers,
be sure to check out the ArtReach
Kids Art Zone.
Be sure to take the time to stroll downtown Golden and
enjoy the summer.
