WELCOME TO THE NEW COLORADO ARTIST TOUR WEBSITE. MORE UPDATES IN THE COMING WEEKS!
New sibling to the longest running & most established art festival on the eastern side of Summit County! Last year was an amazing success. We knew Summit County was hungry for a new show but boy! did they love it!
This is a fine art and fine craft show that will run in the core downtown area of historic Dillon, CO. We will be accepting a maximum of 75 artists for this show. The dates for the show have been chosen carefully as Labor day weekend is one of the town’s busiest. We are excited to build on our continuing success in Summit county and we are again committing all of our resources to making this a success.
Three benefits you should consider:
1. The Dillon Farmer's Market (the most successful and massively attended market in Summit County) will run on the Friday of the show. It is two blocks from the art festival and the spill over on Friday is tremendous.
2. We are running the show on Friday, Saturday, & Sunday but NOT on Monday. Do a show but get home Sunday night to beat the traffic and have Labor Day Monday with your family! I am looking forward to that too!
3. If you are familiar with CCM Events, you know that our marketing is second to none. We will be employing all of our marketing strategies and promotions AND we again will once again have our charitable component to draw even bigger crowds. More on that soon!
