It’s new! It’s exciting! It’s the third annual Sustain Arvada Festival!

It’s free fun for everyone and a great place to learn more about supporting local choices and creating a sustainable community.

Sustain Arvada Festival and Fine Arts and Craft Fair including a Half Marathon, 5K and 10K Run

New Activities

This year we have also infused unique fine arts and crafts.  Please shop and buy from our local artisan who have re-used, recycled and re-made junk into treasures.

We've added a 5K, 10K and Half Marathon to our event! Please sign up here for the running race.

Fitness Zones will be placed in the park.  Come learn a new fitness and possibly take home a new passion.

We are excited about the opportunity for artisans, health awareness advocates, and sustainability vendors this year. Products and information are encouraged at the event. Education and outreach is our goal. We encourage new and innovative businesses that promote sustainability as well as the sale of products that approach 50 percent recycled and repurposed or vintage materials. As usual, we encourage attendance by walking, riding a bicycle or taking the bus.
