The Green Box Arts Festival was officially launched in 2009 to provide artists and visitors with an opportunity to nurture the creative process and explore new artistic directions in the natural beauty of Green Mountain Falls, Colorado. The foundation for the festival was laid in 2006 with the sponsorship by Christian Kirkpatrick Keesee of a dance residency program by New York’s Keigwin + Company under the leadership of company founder Larry Keigwin.
As the residency program progressed from year to year, an interest in diversifying and expanding activities quickly grew in the community. This interest culminated in the formation of the Green Box Arts Festival. The festival seeks to celebrate the best of today’s innovative creators. Partnerships with the Town of Green Mountain Falls, Manitou Springs School District 14, and Church in the Wildwood make the full range of activities possible.
