RIDGWAY – For a quarter century the Ridgway Arts and Crafts Rendezvous has celebrated the artist in all of us by featuring a broad palette of fine arts and original crafts. This year, the 25th anniversary of the popular event, Weehawken Creative Arts will welcome over 150 artists and vendors on Aug. 8 and 9 to Ridgway's historic town park.

Demonstrations of all types are scheduled by select vendors, and entertainment on the park’s main stage will run continuously on both days of the show with music ranging from bluegrass to bagpipes and rock and roll. 

The kids are sure to be entertained, with special family-friendly events planned all weekend including free balloons, face painting, and two arts and crafts booths. Children can ride the Ridgway Fire Department train or jump and play on giant inflatables, and fun family creation station projects will turn into contests for prizes a few times each day.

Additionally, there will be a diverse assortment of food concessions offering everything from barbecue to gyros. 

This annual show is located at the junction of Highways 550 and 62 and runs on Saturday from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. and on Sunday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Admission is free.
