7th 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 event, the All Arts Festival encompasses the rich culture of Steamboat’s visual, music, 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, 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 Emerald City Opera, Piknik Theatre performances, Yampa Art Stroll, Strings Music Festival performances, and, our juried show, Art Steamboat are all part of the Steamboat All Arts Festival.

Art Steamboat Competition

Art Steamboa is a juried art show that showcases the spectacular and diverse artworks of thirty finalists from the Rocky Mountain region. The pieces are displayed in art galleries and alternative venues in Steamboat Springs beginning August 3, showcasing unique artistic talents in Steamboat’s idyllic mountain setting.

The art competition culminates 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 workshop for artists, all lead by our 2015 judge, Nancy Friese.
