About the Festival and Woof Walk
The Summerset Festival was founded over 29 years ago as a way to gather the community together to say good-bye to summer.
Now, as the primary fundraiser of the Foothills Foundation, it has grown in size and sophistication, attracting over 30,000 festival-goers each year. The mission of the event is to build a stronger South Jefferson county by supporting local cultural, educational and recreational programs and activities, while creating opportunities for community partnerships and volunteerism.
Summerset Festival is a member of the Colorado Festivals and Events Association, representing community festivals, ethnic celebrations, music festivals, arts festivals, sporting events, historical celebrations, venues, chambers of commerce, parks and recreation districts, county fairs, rodeos, event vendors and more throughout Colorado.
