26th Annual Durango Autumn Arts Festival
10:00am / Durango Arts Center
The Durango Arts Center is excited to celebrate its 26th year of presenting fine art and fine craft by makers from around the country. This festival takes place amidst the fall colors on quaint Second Avenue in historic downtown Durango, Colorado. The wide avenue, lined with restaurants and a variety of shops, is one block from Main Avenue, a gathering place for shoppers and the thousands of visitors that fill the town each fall.   Organized as a benefit event by and for the Durango Arts Center, the region’s premiere non-profit arts organization serving Durango and the Four Corners, the festival is a well-loved and attended community event attracting a large audience throughout the weekend. In the last several years this festival has welcomed an average of 6,500 visitors. Artists and craftspeople report the show is well organized and offers great hospitality and friendly, steady crowds.   With concern for the safety of our Durango Autumn Arts Festival attendees, the following adjustments have been made to the event:   To avoid clustered gatherings, there will be no indoor live entertainment, food court, or artist dinner. Patrons are encouraged to enjoy food from downtown restaurants. Social distancing measures will be maintained outside, and the art booths will be set up normally for the enjoyment and safe shopping experience of our patrons.
