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 and in 2014 were selected for the state of Colorado’s Creative District Program. Our Mountain Fair celebrates art in all forms of expression, and is known for its diverse range, non-stop entertainment, great food and amazing spirit. Our juried fair is continually looking for interesting new musical acts, handmade goods and food. Over 300 volunteers come together to make this one of the most popular and unique fairs in Colorado, and admission is FREE.
