The Cherry Creek Arts Festival has returned. From July 1-3, the free annual outdoor art fair will show offart works, as well as a lineup of musical performances by artists like indie-pop group Tune-Yards and local acts Ghost Tapes, Mary Louise Lee Band, Ramakhandra and more.
Presented by art education nonprofit CherryArts, the 2022 event marks the festival’s return to its usual Cherry Creek North location after it was relocated to the creek-side area of the Cherry Creek Shopping Center to allow for more social distancing.

The 2022 festival also marks the return of its Student Art Buying program. The program gives students from 22 Colorado schools the chance to buy artwork from festival artists to include in permanent installation at their schools
