DENVER — The Colorado Indian Market & Southwest Art Fest is moving to Colorado Springs this year due to the closure of its former venue, Denver Mart. 

The festival, in its 40th year, is happening Jan. 14 through Jan. 16 at the Colorado Springs Event Center in central Colorado Springs. Organizers said it always coincides with the National Western Stock Show in Denver, which runs Jan. 8 through Jan. 23 this year. 

The Colorado Indian Market & Southwest Art Fest features a juried selection of 150 artists and craftsmen representing a wide variety of traditional Native American work, as well as Southwestern and Western-inspired art, organizers said.

The 2021 festival was canceled due to the pandemic. Before that, it was held at the Denver Mart off 58th Avenue and Interstate 25 in northern Denver. That venue closed in early 2021 after defaulting on loans, the Denver Gazette reported.
