CCM Events is excited to continue The Evergreen Elk Fest (formerly the Evergreen Harvest Festival) in the historic Colorado foothill community of Evergreen! In 2020, we were able to still hold the festival even amidst the COVID situation. Safety protocols and distanced booths resulted in a fantastic show: the health officials approved our approach, patrons attended and were buying, and artists made money!
Being one of the only promoters in Colorado to successfully hold multiple events, our extensive experience in this "new normal" predicts great success for the 2021 season.

Where is the site of the festival?
The location is in the Evergreen North parking lot which looks directly over Evergreen Parkway (CO 74), the main thoroughfare serving Evergreen. We borrowed the address from one of the business there so you can Google it: 3719 Evergreen Pkwy, Evergreen, CO 80439.
Is the show a "block off the streets" event, in a park, or other?
This is a "block off the streets" event in a great parking lot with high visibility.
When do we need to be all packed up and gone on Sunday?
9 pm Sunday night.
"Is there any money back guarantee if for some reason the shows are shut down due to COVID 19?"
In 2020, CCM Events was still able to hold art festivals even amidst the COVID situation. Safety protocols and distanced booths resulted in fantastic shows: the health officials approved our approach, patrons attended and were buying, and artists made money!
We learned a lot last year. Being one of the only promoters in Colorado to successfully hold multiple events, our extensive experience in this "new normal" predicts great success for the 2021 season.
Once you have been accepted to our shows, we have a no refund policy. However, if you stick with us to the point that a government agency shuts us down for any reason, we will give you your money back for that show.
"Is there any money back guarantee if for some reason the shows are shut down due to weather?"
In Colorado, we deal with all manner of weather. We proceed with our events regardless. If however there is weather that is threatening to artists or patrons, we may call off a day of a show or we may call a show over early. This does not constitute a refund of any funds to artists.
Do you have a version of the application you could email me or do you have another way to get the application?
Just give me a call. 7209416088
What type of over night security will you be providing?
Professional, licensed, and insured security person will be on site all night.
Where will patrons park?
There is parking behind the complex (pretty big lot) that I will be using for artist and customer parking. For Saturday customer parking, the CPA next to The Bank Of The West is not open on Saturday so negotiating using their lot as well as negotiating with Bank Of The West since they are open only until noon Saturday. For Sunday, both of those plus the post office is not open either. That is 3 lots for customers. Closest parking will depend on show layout and applications which of course I am working on.
A promoter's first responsibility is to bring patron's to the show. We at CCM Events take this responsibility very earnestly. Your success is what makes a show grow and thrive. We wanted to share how we will accomplish that first responsibility.
*** Display print advertising in The Canyon Courier ( Evergreen), the High Timber Times (Conifer), the Clear Creek Courant (Clear Creek County) and the Columbine Courier (South Jeffco).
About the Canyon Courier - In October 1958, under editor and publisher Vern Manning, Smoke Signals became the Canyon Courier, an independent weekly newspaper. The Courier started with an ambitious goal: covering all news “from U.S. 40 on the north to Bailey and beyond on the south, and from Mount Evans to the east Jefferson County line.”
No one could have predicted in the late ’50s how Evergreen and that entire area would grow in population, until finally many mountain communities had distinct identities and sizable populations of their own.
Today, the Courier focuses more tightly on the Evergreen area, which has grown to become a large, thriving and economically diverse community. Our three sister newspapers — the High Timber Times (Conifer), the Clear Creek Courant (Clear Creek County) and the Columbine Courier (South Jeffco) — now report on many of the areas that the original Canyon Courier sought to cover.
Our goal as newspapers remains the same, however: unite our communities with a reliable and local source of information, advertising and — now — online content.
*** 250 11” x17” full color posters distributed throughout the County via CCM personnel.
*** Press releases to newspapers: The Denver Post, the High Timber Times (Conifer), the Clear Creek Courant (Clear Creek County) and the Columbine Courier (South Jeffco)
*** Press releases to Denver Radio & Television Networks.
*** Float advertising the show in the Rodeo Parade.
*** CCM’s “Stretch” the stilt walker handing out tickets and getting the word out at The Rodeo Parade.
*** Facebook promoted posts – all week of the festival.
*** Lastly, is our secrecy weapon… The Art Festival Shopping Spree. We have used this marketing for the past 6 years at The Lake Dillon Arts Festival and it has been a huge success. The core idea of the promotion is that posters and flyers for an event often get ignored or thrown away. But if you are handed an 8"x 3" full color ticket that could be worth $1000, most likely you will keep it. Not only will you keep it but you most likely will come to the event to see if you win. Last year in Dillon that certainly was the case. Of the 5000 tickets printed for The Lake Dillon Arts Festival, 2700.
