The FestivalThe Evergreen Fine Arts Festival, since 1966, is coming into its 51th year. Held in the Creative District of beautiful Evergreen, the show provides a welcome respite for art lovers from the heat of Denver with over 100 juried national artists displaying their fine art in the cool mountain air. The 2014 festival was ranked in the Top 100 festivals by Art Fair Source Book.
