Observe artists at work, and enjoy activities for the whole family! More than twenty specially selected artists from across the country travel to Central City this September to paint the incomparable Colorado scenery and historic atmosphere. The festival culminates in an exhibition and sale, where 60+ paintings created during the event are displayed and available for purchase. Events include the Kidzone (become an artist with fun, interactive arts activities for the whole family. Tap into your imagination and experiment with chalk art, create your own plein air painting and more!), Central City historic building tour including the Central City Opera House, Teller House, and other properties not currently open to the public, a Balcony Concert (be serenaded by Central City Opera main stage singers, from the iconic Opera House Balcony and Gardens) and the opportunity to watch the artists painting en plein air!
