Throughout the year, eclectic events let Carbondale’s percolating art scene shine. One of the largest open studio events in western Colorado, First Fridays are a monthly celebration of art and local cuisine. Now in its 47th year, Mountain Fair is a beacon of creativity and artistic expression held each July, with hundreds of artisans selling handmade wares, offbeat visual and performing arts, live music, food vendors and a kid-friendly craft area.

Carbondale is also the setting for the annual Green in the New Black Fashion Show. This show is full of locals, performance art, multimedia, inspiring sustainable fashion and a storyline to boot, this show isn’t just entertaining– it is about raising money to educate our youth in the Roaring Fork Valley. Green is the New Black sells out every year at 600 seated tickets plus standing room each night, so we suggest you get your tickets today!
