Ridgway, CO –
The beautiful town of Ridgway is known for spectacular scenery, railroads, ranching, recreation and of course: the Ridgway Rendezvous Arts and Crafts Festival held every year in August for the past 34 years.
In its 35th year, Weehawken Creative Arts will welcome over 140 juried artists and vendors from across the United States on August 10th and 11th in the Town of Ridgway‘s historic park. The 2019 Rendezvous is sure to be the best Rendezvous yet, with an abundance of new artists and craftsmen’s work to enjoy.
All types of fine arts and original crafts will be represented at this show. Additionally, there will be a diverse assortment of food concessions offering everything from barbeque to salmon tacos. This year’s event will feature delicious brews from Colorado Boy Brewery and will also feature signature drinks such as margaritas, mimosas and Bloody Marys, as well as wine at the event.
This two-day festival offers plenty for you to enjoy all day long throughout each day. The entertainment on the Main Stage runs continuously on both days of the show with music ranging from bluegrass to a youth theater performance to rock and roll. Watch art transpire as demonstrations of all types are scheduled by the vendors throughout each day.
These events are perfect for all ages; having plenty of extra special things for families and kids to do – even just playing in the incredible park or walking on the gorgeous river trail between events! On Saturday and Sunday, children will enjoy riding the Ridgway Fire Department train, a magic show, and free arts and crafts booths under the guidance of early arts educator Claudia Brauer.

The show runs on Saturday from 9 am until 5 pm and on Sunday from 10 am until 5 pm.
