Summerfest 2021

September 4 @ 11:00 am - September 5 @ 5:00 pm

Summerfest is back! Due to COVID-19 we had to cancel our 2020 Summerfest event, but this year we are back and better than before. We will have it a little later than normal and are scheduled for labor day weekend! The dates this year are, September 4 and 5, 2021. Summerfest, now in its 41st year, features a fabulous selection of gallery-quality fine art and fine crafts chosen by a jury process. Live music, a children’s craft area, fresh food, and a micro-brew festival round out a spectacular entertainment experience in the pristine foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Summerfest is known for bringing in a dedicated art-buying crowd and for offering the best services for our artist vendors. It may look a little different this year but we are going to do everything we can to bring this back to the community in a safe and fun way. Center for the Arts Evergreen, a non-profit, hosts this event, with proceeds supporting art programming year-round.
