In 2020, the first ever Art on the Green was promoted as a safely curated, art focused, all Colorado art fair. Due to the success of the event, we are presenting the fair again in 2022. The dates are set for Saturday and Sunday, September 17th and 18th at Curtis Park in Greenwood Village, CO. The art fair will be designed with safety first. However, due to changing health guidelines, we will be able to allow more attendees into the fair footprint than last year and will expand the number of artist booths. We have set forth a plan that will allow for a maximum number of visitors given the current guidelines, if any. Please keep in mind that these guidelines can change at any moment. Like the last two years, artist booths and the aisles between rows of booths will be placed far apart allowing for safe, social distancing. On site security will be provided.

In addition, this is an artist driven art fair. We want to help you sell art, especially given the challenging times we have all had the last two years. We will not have: large stage entertainment, hands-on activities or kids craft areas. Our marketing and press will focus on encouraging visitors to purchase art at this fair. We are doing our best to attract an art buying crowd.

Booth space for the two-day event is $250. Booth fees will be due by Friday, July 1st. Booth spaces are 10x10. If you are accepted and need additional space, please call us. Larger booth space is available upon request for an additional charge. Shared booths (with a maximum of two artists) is allowed. However, both artists would need to be accepted through the jury process. If you are interested in applying for the fair, your work must meet the following criteria:
