We have a PA system for your music, moveable lighting, can do hanging installations, and movable tables, blocks and chairs so you can set up how you like! Continue reading

You’ve seen those empty store fronts as you’ve wandered the streets of Old Town Fort Collins. They look like buildings that need some energy to make them happy again. That’s what Art Lab Fort Collins is all about. We’re temporarily filling those wonderful buildings with art, innovation, music, smiling faces until a new tenant comes along. When a new tenant decides to move in, we just move on to the next empty space.

Watch the empty store fronts for something new in Old Town.

2) Use our SignUp Genius to select your dates you’d like to be out on the Square! 

3) If you haven’t already done so, please join the Pop Up Art Carts Facebook Group. Most of the communications for upcoming dates and cartist communications happen in that FB Group.
4) Also be sure when you are done carting to fill out the appropriate Sales Report at the link below and to pay your taxes to the City of Fort Collins.  
5) Do your Tax Forms!!

For the State of Colorado you can get a license for $16 for a two-year cycle which covers you through as many events as you can attend during the year.
