RANKED IN THE TOP 25 ARTS FESTIVALS IN THE COUNTRY!
After 11 years of offering our patrons phenomenal art at $100 or less, we will be making a change in 2023. Due to the soaring costs of art supplies, we will be raising the prices of the artwork to $150 or less. We held off as long as we could but it was getting harder for the artists to continue at the $100 level. The discounts will still be about the same since the market price of the art has also gone up. Even with the increase, a lot of the art will be priced under $150. The increase will also bring more quality artists to the show.
"Every year the show gets bigger and better. I've never had so much fun shopping at an arts festival!" - S.W. - Festival attendee
Every year in August, on the campus of the Arapahoe Community College, over 165 artists from around the country come to Colorado to offer art patrons the unique opportunity to buy fine art for $150 or less. The response to the festival has catapulted it into the fastest-growing show in Colorado and to being a Nationally top 40 ranked show out of over 600 festivals in the country and we are the best place to find affordable arts in Denver! Just in case saving hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars wasn't enough fun, we have coffee and pastries for the throngs of art lovers who show up hours before we open the gates, you'll know that your admission price will help students get scholarships at the Arapahoe Community College and when you buy too much art to carry to your vehicle, we have a team of golf cart drivers waiting at the exit to whisk you to your car. (Please leave your dogs at home. Thanks.)
What kind of art will you find priced at $150 (or less)? Much of the same art you see at other arts festivals. We have painting, glass, clay, sculpture, metalwork, photography, mixed media, fiber and wood. There are pieces that were originally priced at $1,000 or even $4,000 that are now $150. There is also art that is normally priced at $150 or less. There are thousands of pieces of art in the 160+ booths and all of it is affordable.
Another great aspect of the Affordable Arts Festival is that proceeds from the admission ticket sales go to the Arapahoe Community College Foundation to help fund scholarships for the future artists who are enrolled in the art classes at the college. So far we have raised over $250,000 for the Foundation. Just one more way the Affordable Arts Festival benefits the arts and artists.
Tickets $12 online or at the gate.
