This year the arts return to Evergreen in a big way with Evergreen Arts week, August 27 – Sept 5, sponsored by the Evergreen Artists Association (EAA) and Center for the Arts Evergreen (CAE). Due to the pandemic, both organizations had to cancel their annual art shows last summer, but now they are back with both shows and a week of activities in between.
Evergreen Arts Week kicks off August 27 with a concert at CAE (31880 Rocky Village Dr. in Evergreen) by Americana duo Moors & McCumber. Outdoor seating opens at 6:30 pm with the performance at 7 pm. Bring your own chair or blanket. Beer and wine will be available for donations (no outside alcohol is permitted). Food will be available for purchase from Slife’s Devil Dogs and Sweet Freeze Shave Ice. Tickets are available at evergreenarts.org for $25 (free for kids under 12).
EAA’s Evergreen Arts Festival returns to Buchanan Park August 28-29, 10 am – 5 pm with art, food and music. This juried event has been featuring the highest quality original artwork in a variety of media for 55 years, making it one of the longest running art festivals in Colorado. This year’s exhibitors include many returning favorites as well as a number of fresh new artists. Participating artists come from across the country as well as from the local community, bringing their imaginative and creative painting, sculpture, wood, photography, jewelry, glass and more. People’s Choice Award voting cards will be available at each artist’s booth and the information tent so attendees can support their favorite artists in this fun way.
Food vendors include Smoke on the Mountains BBQ, High Society Pizza, and more. Bands include El Javi, Wendy Woo, Dan Edwards, Ann Dam Johnson, The Joseph Armetta Jazz Trio, and Johnny T.
