About the Colorado Artist Tour

What is the Colorado Artist Tour?

Since the early 1990's the Colorado Artist Tour (CAT) has been helping artists and vendors find festivals in Colorado. For many of those years it was a packet with the physical applications enclosed. In 2009, CAT transformed into a virtual 'packet' with the applications online for Artists to print out and apply or links to online applications.

Does CAT rank the shows that are listed?

No. CAT acts as a supplier of info and applications to as many shows in Colorado as possible. Since Artists are looking for all types and sizes of shows, that is what we try to deliver. We recommend that you check into the shows before applying.

When will all of the shows be listed for the coming year?

Most shows will be listed by January 1 but additional shows will be added as the year goes on. Some shows will be new ones, while others may be shows that did not have their applications ready by the first of the year. To stay informed please subscribe (see above).
