The Golden Fine Arts Festival is a Signature event, presented by the Greater Golden Chamber of Commerce.  This two-day Art Show is one of the largest and most prestigious juried Art Shows in the country and features juried art from various media categories such as photography, painting, jewelry, and sculpture. 

Our 2018 Golden Fine Arts Festival will include two large tented areas for the public to sit and enjoy live music, food, craft beers, and wine.  By popular demand, our Kids Art Area will be back and better than ever.

After enjoying the Golden Fine Arts Festival, and finding your special purchases, we invite you to enjoy a free Horse Drawn Carriage ride through historic downtown Golden, visit our cultural attractions, shop our lovely stores, and dine and treat yourself at one of our sweet shops.

Experience all which Golden has to offer, and make a Day of it, at the 28th Golden Fine Arts Festival, Saturday, August 18th and Sunday, August 19th.
