Join us in September in beautiful, historic downtown Durango, Colorado to celebrate the 24th annual Durango Autumn Arts Festival . The Festival is a regional destination event, held on quaint, tree-lined Second Avenue surrounded by boutique hotels, shops, and locally-owned restaurants, with Main Avenue just one block down, known a gathering place for shoppers and the thousands of visitors that fill the town each fall.  
Organized as a benefit event by and for the Durango Arts Center, the region's premiere non-profit arts organization serving Durango and the Four Corners, the festival is a well-loved and attended community event attracting a large audience throughout the weekend.  In 2017, the Festival welcomed an estimated 6000 visitors.  Artists and craftspeople report the show is well organized and offers great hospitality and friendly, steady crowds.
Nestled in the foothills of the San Juan Mountains in La Plata County, the area is home to a population of nearly 54,000 permanent and part-time residents. Durango, located only 40 miles from Mesa Verde National Park, a United Nations World Heritage Site, is a destination for arts and culture enthusiasts, with a rich history in Native American, Hispanic, and Western pioneering cultures. Historic Durango draws the visitors from around the world to ride its famous narrow gauge train, raft the wild Animas River that runs through it, and hike and bike its pristine mountain trails.
