Dream On is an art exhibition featuring artists who’s work illuminates and manifests all facets of the dream spectrum, from imaginative and fantastical imagery, to subconscious and dreamlike explorations, to soul-searching and soul-finding revelations. The whole idea of dreaming (sleeping or not) is often about questioning concepts of “reality”, pushing boundaries, and opening up a deeper conversation about our day-to-day existence.

Carbondale is an “arts” town, and is a central hub of arts activity in the Roaring Fork Valley from Aspen to Rifle. In 2012, we were the recipients of the Governor’s Art Award for our commitment to arts and creativity. Our Mountain Fair celebrates art in all forms of expression, and is known for a diverse range of arts and crafts, non-stop entertainment, great food and an amazing spirit. Over 300 volunteers come together to make this one of the most popular and unique fairs in Colorado, and admission is FREE.
