Visit Durango for its second season of PlayFest! This summer event will begin its second season ever with fabulous creations of entertainment for the arts & humanities and all of their enthusiasts. Playwrights test out their newest works for ticketed audiences, and emerging artists in Durango have an opportunity to display their talents!

The festival features plays, panels, workshops, and even a festival party. Hosted by Wendie Malick and Dan Lauria, PlayFest brings well-known actors to Durango for the event that wraps up summer in the mountains!


PlayFest Mission: “To attract nationally known and emerging artists to Durango, to engage and educate the community while bolstering economic vitality through the development of new works in an intimate and collaborative forum. We strive to make professional artistic expertise and experience accessible to students, educators and community members in the Four Corners region and provide a nurturing environment for playwrights to develop their new work.”

August 5th – 10th, 2019

“May we all come to realize that education and the humanities should be valued for nurturing our minds and society as a whole, and not only as a means to build future careers.”
