After 39 years, Kathleen Ness, one of the Applewood Arts partners, is retiring. Please click here to see her note to artisans. »
We will ALL miss Kathleen. We have many wonderful memories together. We held our inaugural show 39 years ago when we were both teaching. The reason we had that first show? We wanted to have the first opportunity to snatch beautiful wares! And, we STILL feel that way! How time flies when you're having fun!
To my friend and my partner, I wish you only the best. Thank you. Enjoy your retirement. See you at the festivals.
The good news is Applewood Arts will continue our great tradition, showcasing only the most talented artisans from this region. We want to build more and more excitement and enthusiasm for Applewood, and WILL, with your support. We plan to remain Colorado's most prestigious holiday festivals. Stay tuned! Come see the difference!

Our New Look!
Back by popular demand...
- Repurposed Salvage - crusty, rusty, old & nostalgic
- Antiques & Collectibles
We're combining our fine art, fine crafts, specialty foods and gift festivals with the charm of objects that have grown more beautiful with age! We're including reclaimed relics that add whimsy and surprise to any room and your own fashions.
Applewood's 3 festivals feature many new treasures at each festival. Plan to attend all 3!
"The Applewood Shows are always favorites of mine to attend. I'm impressed with the quality of all the artisans. It's so much fun to find one of a kind gifts for friends and family. You can tell the minute you walk into a show, if it's an Applewood Arts Show. If you've never been to one, you need to come experience a wonderful holiday shopping event."
