Event Summary

In case you haven't heard, we have gotten over 100 inches of snow here in
Summit County this month!  While the extra snow will make the wildflowers
amazing this summer, the extreme weather has caused some issues with the
application process for the Silverthorne Fine Art Festival.  Zapp's offices were even closed due to the blizzard last week.  We understand how stressful applying to shows can be when things aren't working properly, so we have decided to give just one extra week to apppy to this show.  The acceptance notification will remain as April 15, 2019.
For this show we are happy to be able to offer free overnight parking, including RV's, for artists, complimentary bagels/coffee/water and lunch.

We are excited return to the town of Silverthorne, Colorado for the second Silverthorne Fine Art Festival.  This is in Summit County (includes Frisco, Breckenridge, Dillon, and Keystone) right on Interstate 70.
The show will be easily accessible from highway 9 for traffic heading in and out of town. Silverthorne is at the base of the stunning Gore Range surrounded by some of the most affluent neighborhoods in the county.  This year, the show will be more centrally located utilizing the recreation center's overflow parking lot.
The show will be limited to 80 fine artists and craftsmen in 13 categories.  Spaces will be easily accesable for set up (day before the show) and tear down, drive right to booth or short dolly.
