6th Annual All Arts Festival

Indulge in the delights of all your senses at the Steamboat All Arts Festival, where symphonic sounds fill the mountain air, culinary delights ignite the taste buds and visual creations burst with color and originality in the mountain town of Steamboat Springs, Colorado.

A collaborative two-week event, the All Arts Festival encompasses the rich culture of Steamboat’s visual, music, dance, culinary and performance arts whilst featuring nationally-renowned artists in an idyllic mountain setting. Take a free master opera class, listen to cowboy jazz or bluegrass, enjoy tapas and wine pairings, or browse the Yampa Art Stroll during this eclectic affair.

All Arts Festival

If you enjoy the arts, this event in Steamboat combines all facets of arts and culture into one festival. The Steamboat All Arts Festival is a collaborative event including the Emerald City Opera, Piknik Theatre performances, the Yampa Art Stroll, Strings Music Festival performances, the Bud Werner Library Sketchbook Project and new to 2014, Art Steamboat.

NEW Art Steamboat Event

New for 2014 is Art Steamboat, a juried art show that will showcase the spectacular and diverse artworks of thirty finalists from the Rocky Mountain region. The pieces will be displayed in art galleries and alternative venues in Steamboat Springs throughout the All Arts Festival beginning August 1, showcasing unique artistic talents in Steamboat’s idyllic mountain setting.

The art competition culminates on August 15 with a celebratory awards reception where the grand prize of $10,000 will be awarded to an artist and each piece will be available for sale to the public. You may also join us for a public gallery walking tour, art lecture and a Matisse painting workshop for artists, all lead by our 2014 judge, Betsy Dillard Stroud. More Info and Full Schedule
