August 22nd & 23rd

CCM Events is excited to continue The 7th Annual Park Hill Arts Festival August 22nd & 23rd, 2020 in the heart of Denver's historic Park Hill neighborhood!


APPLY BELOW - CLICK HERE


THE SHOW

This is a 7th year outdoor juried fine art/fine craft show that will once again be presented on the grounds of the Park Hill Masonic lodge. The grounds are located on Montview Blvd between Dahlia and Eudora street. We will be accepting a maximum of 80 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! To encourage the public to attend (and maybe find a favorite artist remotely?), we will be broadcasting an HD Live Stream to the over 5,700 followers on our Park Hill Art Festival Facebook Page  all weekend long, including once per day from your booth! No other promoter has ever done that!


Saturday, August, 22nd 10:00 am - 5:00 pm 

Sunday, August 23rd  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."


THE VENUE 


Denver's Park Hill is one of the most beautiful historic neighborhoods in the city and is a perfect setting for an art festival. It is located in the northeastern quadrant of Denver and has approximately 26,422 residents in 10,221 households. Park Hill is also the neighborhood where previous Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper resides. Its median income is $88,479, well above the city's overall median income of $55,128.62, with 5% making over $150,000, 10% making $100,00 to $150,00, and 20% making $60,000 to $100,00. 


The show is located in the southern part of Park Hill among these affluent residents. Park Hill features tree-lined streets, homes, and parkways with quaint local shopping areas located throughout. The show location is less than a mile from Denver's City Park, Denver Zoo, and the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.

Marketing Synopsis


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.


1.   3 - 1/2 page and 1 - full page ad in the newspaper that reaches to the heart of  the homes in Park Hill; The Greater Park Hill News. The 1/2 pages will run March and April. The full page ad will run May  1st. 


Here is a bit about the paper: The Greater Park  Hill News is published monthly for the benefit of the residents of the  Park Hill area. The newspaper is distributed on the first of the month  to 14,000 homes in Greater Park Hill.  They also distribute to  businesses and retail districts in the surrounding neighborhoods.


2. One month before the festival, we distributed 3000 full color 8.5 x 11" flyers door to door to homes in the immediate area.


3. One week before the festival, 3000 3x8" full color drawing tickets were delivered to the homes in the immediate vicinity of the festival.


4. 200 11x17" posters in businesses, community centers, bulletin boards, and parks through the show area.


5. Full page ad in Denver Post's "The Hub" and Denver Events calendar  posting on City Spark for Denver Post placement with premium promotion  package.


6. Press releases to select Denver mass media including Denver Metro newspapers like The Denver Post.


7. Four weeks before the festival, our huge banner up on the festival  site. The banner reinforced all of our advertising to our core audience.  


8. Two week feature on a marquee on east bound Colfax Ave  announcing the art festival. This marquee is 1 block east of the busiest  intersection in Colorado.


9. CCM’s “Stretch” the stilt walker and  CCM's "street team" will be handing out tickets & flyers and getting  the word out to residents on the first day of the festival.


10. The Art Festival Shopping Spree. Hand out those tickets. We used this marketing last year at Park Hill ( See the results at https://youtu.be/yjKN8luFD9w)  and for the past 5 years. 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 reinforce all  your marketing with 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. Because the patron  has to be present to win, they came to the festival. ( https://youtu.be/yjKN8luFD9w)
