The Cherry Creek Arts Festival is an annual event that brings together art, music, and culture in the streets of Denver. It is organized by CherryArts, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing access to artistic experiences and supporting arts education in Colorado. The festival features live music, art performances, and lots of local food and drink. It also showcases 13 categories of art ranging from fiber art to photography and engraving.
The main stage hosts performances from Saturday to Monday. Shoppers can be sure that their purchases fund Cherry Arts, the nonprofit organization that organizes the festival and supports year-round arts education opportunities for more than 40,000 Colorado students each year, through school workshops and a mobile art gallery. The organization's mission is to enrich lives through education and artistic experiences, so that everyone has access to arts and culture; to help build a vibrant future for the arts community where artists can thrive; to inspire creativity and innovation through arts education; and to boost economic, cultural and philanthropic sustainability in local neighborhoods. The success of this year's Cherry Creek Art Festival is due to the old: the crowds and fresh air, the influx of visitors, the plethora of tents with their colorful creations, and the return of a 4th of July tradition. Despite the challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic, the festival has managed to maneuver quite elegantly over the past three years. So if you're looking for an exciting way to spend your 4th of July weekend, come join us at the Cherry Creek Arts Festival! You'll be able to enjoy live music, art performances, local food and drink, and support a great cause at the same time.
