2016 Sacred Arts Festival in Durango, Colorado

Now in its eleventh year, the Sacred Arts Festival celebrates artistic expressions of the sacred, and includes art, music and poetry, as well as a labyrinth and meditation garden, lectures, demonstrations and classes. The festival is open to all faith traditions and interpretations of the sacred. With the exception of occasional classes, events are free and open to everyone.

Please note that we are consolidating the three major festival events onto one evening, Saturday, October 1. The art show opening artists' reception is from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. The combined poetry reading and concert have been CANCELLED due to lack of entries.

The festival is hosted by 3rd Ave. Arts. All festival events are held at St. Mark's Episcopal Church, 910 E. 3rd Ave. in Durango, Colorado. The Sacred Arts Festival is entirely self-supporting; click here if you'd care to make a donation.

We are accepting proposals for talks, classes and workshops for the 2016 festival. Please e-mail Festival Director C. Scott Hagler with your ideas.
