The Cheesman Park Art Fest comes to life every summer within Cheesman's 80 acre greenscape, which is bordered on one side by the Denver Botanic Gardens and thriving with hundreds of years of history. Set at the convergence of three densely populated historic neighborhoods in the heart of the Mile High City, the demographics and location of this festival can't be beat! 150 juried artists and craftsmen will be invited to showcase their work in this two day event, which is promoted by Dash Events in association with Rio Grande Festivals.
The Cheesman Park Art Fest has gotten rave reviews from the artist community, and attendees flock to shop and enjoy the perfectly charming atmosphere of the show. Sunshine Artist's 200 Best has already listed the show among the top 35 in the nation twice in its young 6 years. While the show has steadily grown each year in popularity and attendance, it has increased only sparingly in terms of exhibitors. Join us as this show takes root and grows along with the city of Denver!

Cheesman Park is set within one of the most affluent, desirable and densely populated areas of central Denver, with 4 times the number of residents than the city average. Denver's population growth has been off the charts, giving endless opportunities for a centrally-located show like the Cheesman Park Art Fest to grow with the city. The park is well-known and just minutes east of downtown and east of Cherry Creek. The south and east sides of the park are bordered by the Denver Botanic Gardens and large-scale historic homes, and the north and west sides are lined with bustling condo complexes and apartment buildings... making the park an equally popular oasis for Denver's most established residents as well as young professionals! Hip coffee shops and restaurants dot the area, and the highly walkable district lends itself well to naturally high foot traffic.
