This year’s 31st Taste of Creede Festival will showcase local art and cuisine on Main Street. This annual event was envisioned by local artist Steven Quiller and the Taste of Creede Festival will delight visitors with inspired local art and great food.
Pick a bench in Basham Park and enjoy listening to live, local music while noshing delectable treats. Then be sure to watch the Silver Chef competition, which pits local chefs against one another in a cook-off to create a winning dish. Each chef is provided with surprise ingredients, provided by Shamrock Foods, and has forty-five minutes to prepare an offering meant to delight the judges. The winning entry earns bragging rights for the ensuing year until next year’s Silver Chef cook-off.
On Sunday, head north on Main Street after lunch for the annual Quick Draw event. Artists begin with a blank canvas and have one hour to complete their one-of-a-kind works. Afterward, these pieces are offered in the annual art auction. Artists are readily available to offer their expertise to other interested art lovers. Come to the Annual Taste of Creede Festival to experience food and art in abundance!

The Creede Donkey Dash will abide by the basic rules of burro racing as established by the Western Pack Burro Association. Competitors will run the entire distance, leading their pack burro.
Creede’s Burro race will start and end on Main Street, looping up the historic Bachelor Loop and down the winding West Willow Creek 4×4 road, about 10 miles! Competitors will pass by the Commodore Mines, up the Black Pitch, through the Weaver townsite and past Amethyst Mine (with a view of the Last Chance mine). The course leaves the Bachelor Loop Road at the Midwest Mine site, where runners will climb up-and-over Campbell Mountain and traverse down into the East Willow Creek. Several mines can be seen along this part of the race, including the remnants of the Kentucky Belle, gripping the cliffs hundreds of feet above the road. Finish off the final three miles of the race with a gradual downhill that ends on a cheering Main Street!
