If you love art and you love the outdoors then the Winter Park Alpine ArtAffair is for you. Coming July 14 & 15 to Hideaway Park in downtown Winter Park, the 45th annual Alpine ArtAffair is sure to be a spectacular show.


This juried art show is a not-for-profit event. It’s run by an enthusiastic group of volunteers who love bringing art to the community. Admission to the weekend long event is free and all ages are welcome. No matter what your art preferences, you’re sure to find something of interest here. The show will feature artists who work in a wide range of mediums including, photography, jewelry, metalwork, painting, glass, wood, and mixed media.


Also at the event will be Hawk Quest Birds of Prey, a number of community organizations, music, food, and children’s activities. Booth and artist application fees for the event go towards supporting scholarships for local students and towards local schools and the arts community.


The window for applications to be an artist at this year’s Alpine ArtAffair has closed, but you can still come out and support this incredible event by being in attendance. The show runs from 9am to 5pm on the Saturday and 9am to 4pm on the Sunday. Come down early and make a day of it. You don’t even have to grab breakfast before heading out, as the Lions Club is putting on a pancake breakfast on both days.   


If you’re planning on being in the area and are looking for affordable accommodation in Winter Park, Colorado, then you should definitely have a look at the Best Western Alpenglo Lodge. Our downtown location will have you close to all the ArtAffair action and since we’re right on the Winter Park Resort shuttle route you can catch a free ride up the hill for some outdoor adventures too.
