I agree that these art festivals are a dime a dozen, and I seriously doubt that the Cherry Creak Art Festival is the #1 art festival in the country. Here in California every city has an art and wine festival. There are four different art and wine festivals with in five miles of where I live. Some of them are as big, if not bigger then Cherry Creak.

That said, I'd still put the Cherry Creak Art Festival above anything here in Northern California. This area is so over saturated with art and wine festivals that the turn out for them is a fraction of what Cherry Creak gets. Here they are just the basic two day 10AM - 5PM festivals, and everybody goes home to eat dinner. In Denver you have three days instead of two. Way bigger crowds and many people attend the festival more then one day. People eat at the festival, and stay well into the evening to watch the entertainment. There is nothing like that out here.

Whatever you say, chief.

BTW, where's Cherry Creak?

The Renaissance Festival started this past weekend in Larkspur.
We went Saturday. I won't say it is a favorite of mine, but, the kids absolutely love it and it is fun to see so many people in costume.

Great eats at the Greek Festival at the Greek Orthodox Church on Alameda. Very much enjoy the Black Arts Festival, especially for great free music and dance.

Default DOes this count as a festival?

The menus for the 9th Annual Denver Restaurant Week (DRW) will go live on DenverRestaurantWeek.com at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, January 16. The dining event of the year will run from February 23 to March 8, 2013 with more than 300 metro Denver restaurants offering tantalizing, multi-course dinners for the “mile high” price of $52.80 for two (or $26.40 for one, tax and tip not included)!

Denver has great fests, but so do many other towns. My favorite is FibARK, held Father's Day weekend in Salida. Its a massive redneck whitewater-fest.
