July 22, 2014

As I reflect on another successful and memorable Festival, I'd like to extend a sincere thank you to the many parties that contribute to the event. Without our amazing artists, sponsors, volunteers, staff members and many others, the Cherry Creek Arts Festival simply could not exist.

The weather was great and the art, food and music plentiful. I feel lucky to be a part of something that brings such joy and vibrancy to the community. I look forward to the Festival all year long, and watching it in action is especially rewarding.  


I would also like to thank each and every patron that attended the Festival -- without attendees, our year round non-profit mission would not reach fruition.
I can't wait to see you all November 14, 15 and 16 for Art Denver, and July 3, 4 and 5, 2015 for the 25th Anniversary Cherry Creek Arts Festival!

BMW Championship
From September 1-7, 2014, Cherry Hills Country Club will host the BMW Championship for the first time. It is no coincidence that the tournament has, since 1899, become synonymous with top-class golf, excellent organization and a particularly pleasant, relaxed atmosphere. Be sure to get your tickets now as they are limited ensuring you will be a part of this historic event.
