Weehawken Creative Arts Invites All to Attend the 30th Annual Ridgway Rendezvous Arts & Crafts Festival This August 9 and 10, 2014 in Ouray County!
Yet again, Weehawken has outdone itself with the upcoming Ridgway Rendezvous. Artists from all over Colorado and beyond will gather to share their creativity at the event in Ridgways Hartwell Park.
From amazing paintings and ceramics, to jewelry and culinary explosions of talent, the event will focus around the incredible creativity of our local artists.
Live music provides a perfect background, as young and old wander each booth exploring a world of creativity and expression.
A perfect time to get started purchasing the perfect gift for a special someone, or yourself, hand crafted jewelry, candles and beauty products, and embroidery compliment awesome photography, paintings, glassworks and more talent than can possibly be described in one sentence.
Families bring blankets to recline on the grass while young ones gather in joyful camaraderie and dance to the music of local performers and parents and friends reconnect over a microbrew from one of the food booths, indulging the kids with cotton candy and hot dogs.
Often reffered to as “The Gateway to the Rockies”, Ridgway sits at the junction of Highway 550 and 62, just ten miles north of Ouray. With the magnificent San Juans serving as a backdrop to the festival, the Ridgway Rendezvous is considered one of the most picturesque locations for booth set-up and for shoppers in our spacious town park and for successful sales for our vendors. The Rendezvous is a juried show with a commitment to quality.
Several thousand patrons visit the show every year, finding treasures sure to please any person on their shopping lists, as well as original decor not found anywhere else.
