Celebrate Craftsmanship at the Aspen Arts Festival

Aspen is one of Colorado's favorite year-round resort areas, and every year the one-time silver mining community honors artisans in a big way: the Aspen Arts Festival. 

Scheduled for July 25-26, the Festival is an outdoor celebration of the arts that takes place in downtown Aspen on Monarch Street, between Main Street and Durant Avenue. Presented by the Aspen Chamber Resort Association, the weekend showcases dozens of artists from around the country.

Here, you can see a broad range of creations ranging from life-size sculptures, photography, glass, paintings and ceramics to one-of-a-kind jewelry and mixed media. The festival is open 10:00 am – 5:00 pm each day.

Wander around downtown Aspen, grab a bite at a local eatery, and purchase original artwork from the artists themselves as you enjoy this weekend of visual inspiration.
