Evergreen Colorado is a tight-knit community and like most mountain towns, has certain events that make it tight knit. One of the biggest events is the The Evergreen Rodeo held Father's Day Weekend. The rodeo  and parade (held every year for 50 years!) has always been a big draw for residents and visitors from Denver and beyond.


CCM Events is so excited to once again add to the festive Rodeo weekend in Evergreen by presenting the Evergreen Western Art Celebration art festival June 14th, 15th, & 16th. CCM Events will present Western, Southwestern, and rustic artists to the affluent residents of Evergreen Colorado. This is a juried fine art and fine craft show. We will be accepting a maximum of 50 artists for this show. The dates for the show have been chosen carefully as this June weekend is one of the city’s most alive with events and tourists and historically has enjoyed great weather.
