The Evergreen Fine Arts Festival is held in a tree-covered, historic park in the foothills west of Denver.  For almost fifty years, it has been a festival run by artists for artists.   The sponsoring, non-profit Evergreen Artists Association provides the mountain communities with cultural events, a cooperative up-scale gallery, classes for artists and youth scholarships.  The history of high quality that has been exhibited at this festival continues to draw buyers from both the immediate communities and the metro-Denver area.  Most spaces are shaded at least part of the day although there are some in the sun.  The layout of the park has been altered to eliminate difficult spaces to access via dolly and to improve the flow of traffic.  Space requests are honored as much as possible.

Apply through zapplication.org using three image slides and one booth slide
