Expanding on the event, this year’s Festival starts in Downtown Telluride at the base of the gondola, then continues up to Mountain Village with “pop-up” galleries from more than 50 artists across three locations: Oak Street Plaza, Heritage Plaza and the Conference Center Plaza in Mountain Village.

Presented by Howard Alan Events (HAE), the largest producer of the nation’s finest, outdoor juried art shows, the 2nd Annual Mountain Village/Telluride Fine Art Festival represents original, hand-crafted artwork selected by an independent panel of expert judges from hundreds of applicants. HAE’s careful vetting process ensures a wide array of mediums and price ranges will be offered during the festival.

The fine art festival is part of HAE’s 2023 Colorado Summer of Art Tour which continues with the show that started it all during the 35th Annual Beaver Creek Fine Art Festival on August 4, 5 and 6. The Summer of Art series concludes with the newest showcase during the Steamboat Springs Festival of the Arts on August 12 – 13.
