Artist Demonstrations

Our artists are encouraged to provide demonstrations as possible during our two-day event.   Come by our information booth located at the gazebo for a listing and location of these demonstrations!

Food, Drink & Fun!

Our event hosts a beer, wine, margarita and bloody mary tent near the entertainment stage on both days.  There are also ample food and drink vendors on-site.   You'll enjoy everything from delicious organic salads to a good old fashioned bratwurst.   Further, the festival is just steps away from some of the best restaurants in Western Colorado!  From farm to table, to gourmet tacos, to Thai, our little town has a surprising plethora of culinary fare!

Fun for the Kids Too!

** PLEASE NOTE: Due to COVID, children's activities will be limited. Magic shows, children's stage performances, free kids activities,  "train" rides,  face painting and a kids playground smack-dab in the center of the event!  These are just a few of the great things for kids at the Ridgway Rendezvous Arts and Crafts Festival. 

Make a weekend of it!  Bring your bikes and swimsuits and enjoy the arts festival as well as our awesome river path, bike trails and gorgeous resevoir. Or, head just 11 minutes down the road to Ouray and soak in the Ouray Hot Springs!

Quality Art Galore!

Did we mention that this juried arts festival just gets better and better each year?  With a healthy variety of original works by over 130 artists and craftsmen, you're surely not going home empty handed!
