ABOUT THE EVENT

A GREAT EVENT IN A GREAT COMMUNITY

Ridgway is located at the junction of Highways 550 and 62, in Southwest Colorado, Gateway to the beautiful San Juan Mountains.  Montrose, Ouray and Telluride are just a few miles from Ridgway.  We are an important town on the San Juan Scenic Highway, the most beautiful and popular tourist route in Colorado. 

 

In it's 35th year, the Ridgway Rendezvous offers both artists and patrons a well organized, quality show.  We are known for 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.

 

The show is attended by several thousand customers and is hailed by many of our regular participants as “one of their best shows of the year”.   The organizers offer live musical entertainment all day both days of the show and several attractions are geared specifically to children.  The event is fun for the whole family and there is no admission charge.  We hope to see you this summer!

 

The Ridgway Rendezvous Arts and Crafts Festival is hosted and sponsored by Weehawken Creative Art. Funds raised at this event help support Weehawken Creative Arts Youth Art Programs.

STAFF HOURS

Weehawken Staff members are based in Ridgway and are available by appointment most weekdays.  However, our program serves three communities and our staff is split between two busy non-profit arts organizations, so we are often not solely in an office daily.

 

Rendezvous staff IS Weehawken AND Sherbino staff, which means that they are juggling over 650 programs a year in 3 communities.  Weekday correspondence via email or phone is most-reasonable. 

MONDAY - FRIDAY

10 AM - 5 PM
