2. Does Applewood Arts allow only handmade items?

No. We have included unique gift items not usually found in retail stores and special, gourmet foods. In 2016 we added repurposed salvage and vintage nostalgia. However, we will continue to highlight uncommon handmade goods.

Sometimes. Each artisan handles his/her own sales. Some allow credit cards. Others take checks or cash only.

4. What makes Applewood Arts Festivals so special?

Serious fine art and fine craft patrons are never disappointed by our variety and high quality. An exciting new aspect introduced in 2016 was our addition of repurposed salvage & vintage nostalgia which are so popular for home decorating and fashion. Our entertainment, specialty food selections, gift items and delicious luncheon treats, sweets and confections make our festivals not to be missed. Parking is free. Re-entry is free all weekend.

5. Do the same artisans display at all 3 festivals?

No. Each show features 30-50% different artisans, and returning artisans many times bring new inventories to each show. Attend all three shows to see the best selection of art, crafts, gifts, specialty foods and reclaimed relics on Colorado's Front Range. Some artisans come from long distances, out of state. Remember, most items are one-of-a-kind.

Yes, all are.

7. When are strollers allowed?

The festivals spotlight over 100 artisans with beautiful displays, like going into over 100 small shops. With a crowd it is very difficult to maneuver a stroller through the mazes. Strollers are welcome after 1 p.m. on Saturdays and allowed all day on Sundays.

8. On Sundays are selections picked over?

Our artisans want their Sundays sales to be fantastic. Our artists restock and often add new items before we open at 11:00 a.m. on Sundays. We encourage you to come back Sundays, free of charge. Just show us your handstamp from Saturday. Bring lots of new shoppers with you. Enjoy our entertainment and stay for lunch and special treats. Sundays are definitely more relaxed!
