This year marked the 21st year for the annual Cherry Creek Arts Festival. The festival is held on the 4th of July weekend every year for 3 days. The arts festival features all different walks of art in the visual, culinary, and performing arts. With over 30 sponsors for the event and an average of 300,000 attendees to the event every year, this festival is definitely one that can be enjoyed by everyone. Street performers, stage performers, culinary performers, and even live art performers kept the energy going while thousands of happy and optimistic viewers fueled the day. The festival featured an “Artivity Avenue” where everyone could find an interactive “Artivity” to express their artistic side! The festival showcased 236 exhibitors which included 12 award winners and 8 emerging artists! If you missed out on the festival this year, then you definitely missed out on one of Colorado's largest displays of national and international art!
