The West Colfax MuralFest is a vibrant art experience in 40 West Arts District (Lakewood, CO), designed to celebrate creativity and the character of historic West Colfax. Join us for the 4th annual West Colfax MuralFest on Saturday, August 11th, 2018 from 11am-6pm! Held in the heart of 40 West Arts District at Lamar Station Plaza (6501 W Colfax Avenue, Lakewood, CO 80214–See map here), the plaza is home to two art galleries, a newly-opened brewery, and Casa Bonita, where weekend visitors to this nationally-known restaurant run in the thousands.
By all accounts, the 2nd Annual West Colfax MuralFest on August 20th, 2016 was a big success on many levels–not the least of which was the crowd of 5,000+ attendees! 30 art booths, 7 food trucks, 3 bands and a DJ all came together to the delight of the crowd. This free arts festival featured juried artists from across the country who created an outdoor art gallery of six murals—culminating in a one-day celebration of art, music, food, and creative activities for the whole family.
Organized by the West Colfax Community Association, in association with 40 West Arts and Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design, this buzz-worthy, annual festival brought together creative activities from established and emerging artists in urban art, graffiti painting, and the modern music scene.
