The festival set up will include the street, sculpture garden, and parks. Food trucks, beer garden, and live music will also provide a significant draw to the event.
The Orchard Arts Festival is unique in that it has a small town feel set in a big city. It is surrounded by the historic buildings and homes that made up this agricultural center in the late 1800’s. The festival derives its name from the Apple Orchards that once graced the surrounding lands. Westminster is the largest suburb of Denver, the Harris Park neighborhood in which the festival is held, was where the city originated, now it is the home of the Historic Westminster Arts District, which houses several SCFD organizations, including SWAG (South Westminster Arts Group), the festival promoter.
Celebrating it’s 6th year, the Orchard Arts Festival is a well established festival held in the Historic Westminster Arts District. This one day event draws attendees from all of the front range including Denver and surrounding cities. The festival has shown significant growth in attendance over the last 5 years and also has significant support from the City of Westminster.
