Original artisan works will be on display under nearly 100 tents during the Estes Valley Sunrise Rotary Club’s annual Labor Day Arts & Crafts Festival in Bond Park Sept. 3, 4 and 5.
The event in Bond Park, the anchor for final summer events in the community, features a full range of juried artistic endeavors from sculpture, paintings, jewelry, wood, photography, fiber art and more created by artisans in their own studios. During the weekend children are offered the opportunity to create their own visual art as well as wear face paintings created by a professional artist.
For more than four decades, artists’ tents have dotted the perimeter of the park in the heart of downtown Estes for the show. Booths will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 3 and 4; and from 9 am to 3 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 5.
Parking in one of Estes Park’s outlying parking lots, or in the free multi-level parking garage at the intersection of US 34 and US 36 (Elkhorn and St. Vrain Avenues) is convenient, and highly recommended. Easy access to the core downtown area is provided by free and frequent shuttles throughout the entire Estes Park area. Those who wish to park closer to all the action in downtown Estes Park are advised that nearly all spots dotting the business district are metered.
