Juried arts and crafts show. The Colorfest is only located in the Park and the Community Fair Grounds. Many of the local residents and facilities rent spaces to vendors, but these are not considered Colorfest and tend not to be juried. Many people come to the Park and the Fair Grounds only.
The entire town of Thurmont is shutdown for the time of the fair. Shuttle buses are provided from the loal sholls to the center of town.
Many of the crafters do demonstrations of their craft through out the show.
Colorfest Incorporated runs Colorfest and prides themself in jurying and then checking to see what their crafters and displaying.
Huge event throughout the town of Thurmont. This is the official site listing, however, private organizations, churches and individuals rent space. You can also contact the town itself for outside listers.
