Since 1991, the CherryArts 501c3 nonprofit mission provides access to art experiences and supports arts education via the Cherry Creek Arts Festival, Stanley Arts Festival and statewide art education programs.
EDUCATION & COMMUNITY OUTREACH: CherryArts fulfills its nonprofit mission and gives back to the community through year-round arts education, making access to the arts possible for all. We serve over 20,000 students annually with the Mobile Art Gallery, Student Art Buying Program, Mobile Art Cart: Printmaking Edition, the Alliance Project and on-site programs, such as Creation Station, at each Festival.
CHERRY CREEK ARTS FESTIVAL transforms the Cherry Creek North District into Denver’s most renowned outdoor gallery of fine art each July. Over 2,000 artists annually apply to be one of the 250 juried artists, making it a top art show in the country. A Colorado Signature Cultural Event, CCAF highlights the area as a premier arts and cultural destination.
STANLEY ARTS FESTIVAL takes place at the border of Stapleton and Aurora at the Stanley Marketplace, home to 50+ local businesses operating sustainably and creatively in a repurposed aviation facility. The September SAF event is energized with up-and-coming households and features 100 juried artists and distinctive local flavor.
CHERRYARTSHOP.ORG supports CherryArts year-round education programs and schools by offering original artwork and commemorative festival posters. Your Festival. Year Round!
