Open Arts Fest, presented by Downtown Boulder, Inc. and OpenArts, is a celebration of Boulder's visual arts unlike any other.  Local artists will be joined by artists from around the country, providing demonstrations, workshops and showcasing their work. There will be exciting children's art activities, a silent auction benefiting OpenArts scholarship programs - and much, much more!
Open Arts Fest is designed to put Boulder on the map as an arts destination. The Fest will showcase the finest artists from Boulder, Colorado and the nation, with an emphasis on fine arts and fine crafts. Occurring in the height of the tourist season, the Open Arts Fest is expected to draw at least 90,000 attendees over a 2 day period. Cash prizes for the best of show, 2D and 3D categories, VIP space for our artists, ample volunteer support, breakfast, water and snacks will help you sustain yourself throughout the Fest.

What's special? Street performances by some of Boulder's finest performing arts organizations and musical groups as well as artist's demonstrations and an incredible children's art tent will round out the weekend. Finally, you will have the opportunity to show one piece of art at the Canyon Gallery of the Boulder Public Library.  The Canyon Gallery will host our preview party/kick-off event on Thursday, July 19th - giving art collectors the opportunity to see your work first (and learn where you'll be at the fest).
