Denver County is hosting it’s first ever county fair at the end of July. The Denver County Fair will honor the fine traditions and values of America’s county fairs, which have been enjoyed by millions of people for over 100 years.
But, the Denver County fair is NEW. Although land was bought for a Denver Fair in the 1800s, that plan was interrupted by a little thing called the “Civil War” and no fair was ever launched. (That land is now City Park, by the way.) Somehow, the idea never came to fruition until NOW – in the 21stcentury, when Denver is a modern, bustling metropolis, forging a reputation as “the new creative capitol.”
The Denver Handmade Alliance will be setting up a Pop-Up shop in the Craft Pavilion. My prints and cards will be featured in the shop along with the work of 28 other local artists:
