CherryArts is excited to partner with Stanley Marketplace in their opening year to create an event that will grow and thrive within this unique urban marketplace. CherryArts Festival at Stanley will feature national artists, local flavor, family entertainment, Home Design Vignettes by Colorado Homes & Lifestyles, and the Colorado Homes & Lifestyles Kitchen presented by Specialty Appliance.

CherryArts at Stanley will celebrate the culinary arts with two valuable opportunities: 1) the Grand Tasting and 2) a live demonstration at our culinary demonstration kitchen tent. At both of these events will feature Denver’s most accomplished and acclaimed chefs, Kevin Taylor.

Kevin’s most anticipated restaurant, Stanley Beer Hall, will open in early 2016 within the Stanley Marketplace. Within Denver’s much-admired Center for the Performing Arts, guests enjoy modern cuisine at Kevin Taylor’s at the Opera House, and casual pre- and post-theater fare in Limelight Supper Club & Lounge. At the nearby Denver Art Museum, Kevin further entices those with an affinity for the arts with the contemporary-American Palettes. For those who travel outside the city to enjoy the Central City Opera each summer, Rouge, in the Teller House, serves modern mountain chophouse cuisine in a uniquely historic setting. Although each restaurant’s menu and style offers diners a singular experience, Taylor’s belief in fresh ingredients and beautiful presentation is a common thread throughout all. 

Stanley is a creative venue with grand ambitions and is like no other marketplace. It is a former aviation facility with mixed indoor and outdoor spaces located in the Stapleton neighborhood.
