Mountain Harvest FestivalĀ is now presented by The North Fork Valley Creative Coalition.

The Creative Coalition manages the Paonia Creative District. It has been an honor and privilege to be recognized by Colorado Creative Industries as one of twenty-five state-certified creative districts. For the last ten years, the Coalition has organized the arts community to expand public art, serve our membership, offer business development to makers and deepen our nonprofit collaborations.

We know that adding Mountain Harvest Festival to our roster will be an exemplary contribution to our mission and our valley. This year, we have assembled an outstanding professional production team promising to deliver a stellar festival. Our team intends to build on the history of supporting local artists, regional musicians, local farmers and the downtown business community.


Local musicians, writers of poetry and prose, dancers, comedians, and various other dramatists conspire to entertain us non-stop throughout the festival!
