ColoradoArtShows.com is excited to continue The 10th Annual Park Hill Arts Festival in the heart of Denver's historic Park Hill neighborhood!
This is a 10th year outdoor juried fine art/fine craft show that will once again be presented on the grounds of the Park Hill Masonic lodge located on Montview Blvd between Dahlia and Eudora street. We will be accepting a maximum of 90 artists. The dates for the show have been chosen carefully as the beginning of June is one of the city's most beautiful months with average temperatures in the low 70's.
SOMETHING BRAND NEW! We will be broadcasting multiple Live Streams to the over 7000 followers on our Park Hill Art Festival Facebook Page all weekend long! No other promoter has ever done that!
Saturday 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Sunday 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
Linda, an artist from Denver, said after the show: "Your show this weekend has been wonderful. I will fill out the questionnaire that you have provided, but I wanted to give you a special thanks. If you are the one who is responsible for the ice water being passed around at no charge, thank you. (I had forgotten what 80 deg. feels like....lol) The way you have arranged the tent set-up is pretty perfect...Great setup."
Denver's Park Hill is a historic neighborhood in Denver and is a perfect setting for an art festival. Home to former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper (he attended one of our shows by the way!), Park Hill has a median income of $98,479 (well above the city's overall median income of $55,128.62) and 5% of residents make over $150,000, 10% make $100,00 to $150,00, and 20% make $60,000 to $150,00. The show is located in the southern part of Park Hill among these affluent residents. The show location is less than a mile from Denver's City Park, Denver Zoo, and the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.

"Is there any money back guarantee if for some reason the shows are shut down due to COVID 19?"
In 2022, we were 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 2022 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.
