Celebrating 29 years of presenting fine art and fine craft by makers from around the country, this festival takes place amidst the fall colors on quaint Second Avenue in historic downtown Durango, Colorado.
Organized as a benefit event by and for the Durango Arts Center, the region’s premiere non-profit arts organization serving Durango and the Four Corners, the festival is ranked one of the top festivals in the country welcoming an estimated 7,000 to 8,000 visitors. Artists and craftspeople report the show is well organized and offers great hospitality and friendly, steady crowds.
Festival patrons are encouraged to enjoy food from the many delicious restaurants downtown and throughout Durango (see our list of sponsors below for some ideas).
“By far the best show I have ever done. I have committed to making this show a part of my lineup every year.”
