In just over 7 weeks, thousands will descend upon the streets of Cherry Creek North for the 20th Anniversary of the Cherry Creek Arts Festival, and we could not be more excited.

We are  happy to report that planning is going very well... from our sponsorships to volunteers, from marketing to our attending visual artists! The energy in our offices (and email in-boxes!) continues to crescendo and excite all involved.

In the coming weeks, we'll work hard to not only deliver the world-class festival that you've come to expect, but to perhaps give you some new things too! Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for never before pre-event and on-site news, weather and specials (and once you're following CCAF with Twitter, please be sure to enable Twitter alerts to your phone!)

Executive Director, Cherry Creek Arts Festival

Bring your voice, bring your opinions, bring art to Colorado schools

In the spirit of making art more accessible to Colorado's students, Janus and the Cherry Creek Arts Festival education department have collaborated to bring art to Colorado students.  Express yourself by visiting the Cherry Creek Arts Festival web site and voting for the artist you'd like to see featured in this year's Mobile Art Gallery. Each voter will be automatically entered into a random drawing for art inspired gifts that include Festival VIP Hospitality Packages, framed art posters and more! ALSO, the school with the most votes wins the unique experience of having the Mobile Art Gallery visit for two weeks during the 2010-2011 school year!

Join Janus and the Cherry Creek Arts Festival in ensuring that art education remains an important part of school curriculum during a time when funding for school arts programs is a rare commodity. VOTE TODAY and help bring art to Colorado Schools!

The Art of Giving Back

Volunteers are the backbone of the Cherry Creek Arts Festival. The difference between a good volunteer program and a great one is that the volunteers have a wonderful time while they are working for the event.

If you enjoy giving back to the community or know of others that enjoy volunteering, please share your experience with others and
volunteer today!

The Cherry Creek Arts Festival is a 501c3 non-profit organization and is eligible for many volunteer & community service credit hour programs.
