Cherry Creek Arts Festival
Cherry Creek North
btwn. 1st and 3rd Aves., Clayton and Steele Sts., Denver
Every Fourth of July weekend the streets of Cherry Creek North’s shopping district are barricaded for three days to host a huge outdoor Cherry Creek Arts Festival. The emphasis is on the artwork to be sure, but there is also live music and a whole street devoted to culinary creations.
Wander the various booths until something catches your eye, then duck inside the tent, where you might find yourself having a one-on-one chat with one of the artists. The free festival includes local artists and those who have come from around the world to participate.
