The 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.
