A Golden icon for three decades, Golden Fine Arts Festival is a juried art show located in the heart of historic downtown Golden, Colorado.

With its prime location just 20 minutes west of Metro Denver and free admission to the public, this premier event traditionally draws large crowds over 2 days to enjoy art, live entertainment, beer and wine gardens and food vendors.

The event, rich in community tradition and a well-established reputation, is limited to 100 artist booth spaces.  Artists are selected through a competitive jury process selected by art professionals. Traditionally, over half of participating Artists travel to Golden from outside of the state of Colorado.  Colorado is also home to many talented Artists who participate at the event each year. Cash prizes are awarded to 1st and 2nd place winners in nine categories, as well as Best of Show and Best of Colorado honors.

Produced by the Golden Chamber of Commerce, Golden Fine Arts Festival is a favorite of those who value an attentive and welcoming ‘home hospitality’ of Golden, Colorado for artists and patrons alike.
