Golden Fine Arts Festival is put on by the Golden Chamber of Commerce
and is now in its 22nd year. The show's goal is to present high-quality
art in an accessible, beautiful atmosphere next to Clear Creek. Adjacent
to the Festival is the Golden Farmers Market, an added draw for
attendees as well as the Golden History Museums' Clear Creek History
Park which features demonstrations of traditional craft during this
weekend. Musical entertainment, food, children's art zone, horse-drawn
carriage rides all just a block west of Historic Downtown Golden.
Attendance is typically 35,000. Space requests are honored as possible.
