Sales at this show continue to increase as word spreads about the quality of artists exhibiting after a very competitive jury process. The Crested Butte Arts Festival is gaining national attention and sponsorship and draws a savvy, sophisticated art buying clientele.
The charming and eclectic town of Crested Butte, a National Historic District, is the venue for this outdoor show. Admission and parking are free and entertainment, children's programs, and hands-on workshops are scheduled throughout the weekend. Truly one of the industry's best kept secrets, the Crested Butte Arts Festival must be experienced to be believed!
As a resort community Crested Butte brings in plenty of visitors. Our marketing plan focuses on bringing in the right kind of buyers to the festival. We have focused on new home buyers and property owners in the area, partnering with Colorado Homes and Lifestyles Magazine, the CBAF is working on bringing in a new demographic.

Thank you for a great festival. I had my best single day in 23 years of Art Festivals on Saturday. You and your staff were a pleasure to work with. I hope to return next year. Richard McCollum 2016 Exhibiting Artist
