Celebrating its 26th year, Castle Rock’s festival of art brought slews of enthusiasts out yesterday to peruse booths featuring art from across the U.S. The annual Colorado ArtFest, presented by the Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce – in partnership with Douglas County Libraries, the Outlets at Castle Rock and Sky Ridge Medial Center – gives the public a chance to view and purchase the talented work from over 170 different artists.
As in year’s past, Artfest can be found in front of the Philip S. Miller Library parking lot, stretching to Town Hall and into downtown Castle Rock to the east. Along with artwork from seasoned artists, the event also gives people a chance to enjoy live music from local entertainers, presentations from Hawk Quest, featuring live birds, strolling performers as well as a kids zone with activities for young attendees.
If you missed yesterday, there’s still time to enjoy the second day of festival. It will go on all day Sunday, from 9AM – 5PM, with an entry fee of $5 for adults, $3 for those over 65 and 16 and under are free. Today only, active military and first responders are free.
