This year’s 36th Annual Taste of Creede Festival will showcase local art and cuisine on Main Street. This annual event was envisioned by local artist Steven Quiller and the Taste of Creede Festival will delight visitors with inspired art, theatre, live music and great food. 

Wander among the 25+ artists on Main Street Saturday, as they bring to life their latest works. Pick a bench in Basham Park and enjoy listening to live music while noshing delectable treats.  Alcoholic beverages purchased from participating business are permitted outdoors within designated blocks of downtown.  Sample the flavors of this unique boomtown with the first annual KBelle Community Cook-Off!  Amateur contestants representing local businesses will face a panel of judges, while ladling out samples for everyone to try.

Peak into the Creede Repertory Theatre to grab tickets for a production of Baskerville, a fast-paced Sherlock Holmes mystery. Peruse this year's National Small Prints Show exhibition, where artists from all across America and Canada compete in a juried show with matted, hand-pulled prints.

On Sunday, head north on Main Street after lunch for the annual Quick Draw event. Artists begin with a blank canvas and have one hour to complete their one-of-a-kind works. Afterward, these pieces are offered in the annual art auction. Artists are readily available to offer their expertise to other interested art lovers.
