Join us for a one-of-a-kind festival in Saguache, Colorado. Start at the Community Building located at 525 7th Street from 10 am until 3 pm on Saturday, July 31, 2021. Utilize our map to stroll through town and enjoy local gardens, fairy house tours, artist booths and more.
As part of the 10th Annual Hollyhock Festival, there will be an “all things Hollyhock” theme for art entries using all mediums in the annual art show and contest. Artists are cordially invited to consider creating an entry in one of the two divisions—Adult and Youth (K-12). The art entries will be judged prior to their display at the Community Building. Winners will be announced at 2:00 pm with ribbons, recognition and prizes awarded.
Artists interested in entering their hollyhock creations are asked to bring their entries to the Town Hall in Saguache located at 504 San Juan Avenue. Items should be delivered between the hours of 8 am and 4 pm starting Monday, July 19th, and no later than Friday, July 23rd.
A Hollyhock Committee representative will collect these entries from Town Staff.
The Town of Saguache adopted the hollyhock as the Town Flower in 2012. Since 2013, there have been self-guided tours of town gardens and yards.
For 2021, the 12th Annual Arts Walk will also be held on the same date. Activities that day will include face painting, making hollyhock dolls, master gardener clinic, beekeeping demonstration along with live music, galleries, children’s activity area, and a car show.
