Since 1986. The annual Mountain Arts Festival in beautiful Woodland Park, Colorado, brings artists from all over the country, and still has the small town feel with plenty of local artists also exhibiting their art. The 70 some artists registered runs the gamut from watercolor, oil, and acrylic paintings to woodworking, from jewelry to sculptures, from metalwork to weavings, and from pottery to finely turned pens. Every year the festival brings art lovers from all over the region. 

Entry is free and there will be food and drink vendors on hand as well! $20 coupons are drawn every hour for attendees, which can then be used to purchase art from one of our fine artisans.

***COVID-19 Alert***

For all of you interested in the 35th Annual Mountain Arts Festival to be held in August, we are developing our contingency plans to cope with the coronavirus. The plans will change as we learn more each week about state and local directives for public gatherings. We are trying to stay flexible so we are extending our deadline for MAF artists applications until June 1. Though it would give the Mountain Artists only two months to pull together the Festival, we are confident we could do it. Once again, it all depends on how the virus progresses in the state of Colorado, the directives from state and local governments and how comfortable we feel about sponsoring a large public gathering. If we do cancel the Mountain Arts Festival and you have sent in your application, we will return your check or issue a full refund. Please stay safe and stay home and check back every week on this website for updates.
