The 17th Street Arts Festival takes place Aug. 16-17 in downtown Cheyenne. The two-day festival features dozens of juried visual and performance artists from around the region, workshops for young people to learn about their artistic talents and food and activities for the entire family.

The event showcases and celebrates local creativity in all its forms and provides Cheyenne residents and visitors with a unique arts-related experience.
