30th Annual Cherry Creek Arts Festival
CherryArts announces the cancellation of the 30th Annual Cherry Creek Arts Festival, July 3, 4, and 5, 2020. This decision was made after weeks of careful deliberation about the challenging and evolving impacts of COVID-19. As an event that relies on the regional and national travel of 260 artists and hosts over 330,000 people, we are confident this is the best decision to ensure the safety of artists and our community during this time of social distancing.
We look forward to returning in 2021 on July 2, 3 & 4, when we plan to celebrate the 30th Anniversary with Art for Everyone including visual and performing arts and educational and immersive art experiences.
As a year-round, non-profit organization with a mission to provide access to art experiences and support arts education in Colorado, CherryArts is initiating and exploring a number of options to support artists and the community throughout 2020.
First and foremost, CherryArts hosts the Art Shop, a virtual platform featuring the work of Cherry Creek Arts Festival juried artists. Every purchase directly supports CherryArts’ artists.
CherryArts is also partnering with Food For Thought, an organization delivering thousands of meals to Denver Public School (DPS) students and their families, to distribute “Art Kits” to these students throughout Denver.
