Carbondale Mountain Fair – Revised for 2020
July 24, 2020 - July 26, 2020
The Carbondale Mountain Fair will deliver its 49th festival of arts and music—from afar—July 24-26, 2020. Instead of its usual festival-style format in Sopris Park, the event will take music and art to neighborhoods across town on a touring flatbed truck, plus there will be a live stream Saturday night concert from Steve’s Guitars.
Mountain Fair will not be the same as it has been in previous years and will not take place in Sopris Park. As an organization and community of dedicated volunteers, we have devised a safe and creative plan that will allow us to celebrate within gathering guidelines.
We discourage any gathering outside of designated quarantined groups or families, and we encourage adherence to the Town of Carbondale’s mask or facial covering ordinance.
Posters and t-shirts (design peek below) will be available mid-July and throughout the summer at the Carbondale Farmer’s Market on Wednesdays 10am-3pm, at The Artique Gift Shop inside The Launchpad, and will be available online for contact-free purchasing.
See schedule of events. All entertainment and events are subject to change. We recognize that at any moment all current plans could be cancelled. We are putting in every effort to remain flexible and adaptive. We are committed to the safety of the community.
About the Fair
The Carbondale Mountain Fair began in the early ‘70s with 20 booths showcasing local artists and artisans. Today, the Mountain Fair draws over 145 vendors poised to bring their unique and diverse homemade wares to town each summer. In addition to vendors, Mountain Fair features non-stop entertainment–both in live music and various forms of performing arts; a family-area called The Oasis which provides interactive, creative experiences for children; great food; friendly competitions that run the gamut from pie baking to wood splitting, and an amazing spirit. That spirit is best evidenced by the over 300 volunteers who come together to run the fair. Throughout the weekend, over 20,000 people pass through from across the state and all over the country! Join us July 24–26th 2020 for this summertime tradition!
