Golden Glass Orbs Hunt

The Golden Glass Orb Hunt is a new event in Golden this year! During the month of September, we will place an orb somewhere in the city each day for thirty days, one for each day of the month. Three local artisans handcrafted these one-of-a-kind glass orbs for Golden visitors to find and keep.

Each orb is marked with a special tag and instructions for treasure finders to register their orb at the Foothills Art Center where they will receive a certificate of authenticity. Foothills Art Center is open Mondays – Saturdays: 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM and Sundays: 12:00 – 5:00 PM. Once you register your orb, you will have the opportunity to enter a drawing to win a $200 gift card to a Golden business of your choosing (odds are 1/30).
