Festival Overview

Vail is home to one of the most spectacular resorts in the world.  Located just 90 minutes west of Denver, this well-known, year-round international vacation destination is also a haven for passionate art enthusiasts.  

In order to capitalize on this passion and showcase the wealth of talent within the community and beyond, the Vail Arts Festival was created.  Consisting of a three-day outdoor celebration, the festival provides access to a broad array of genres. 

Situated at the base of Vail mountain in beautiful Lionshead Mall, the festival offers visitors a rare opportunity to interact with artists up close and witness the actual creative process firsthand.
