About Our Auction

Thank you for participating in our online auction! The Carousel of Happiness is such a magical piece of living folk art and we couldn't thrive without supporters like YOU! We are on a mission to inspire happiness, well being and service to others through storytelling and experiences...and we need your help. Funds raised at our annual auction go towards carousel preservation and programming. Let's make sure our little gem in the mountains is here for many generations to come!

We hope to raise $7k this year and appreciate all of the terrific auction donations from our amazing community here in Nederland, Colorado. New this year are one of a kind experience packages that will perfectly compliment any trip to Ned by locals and visitors alike. Take a look, place a bid and show some support. Thanks...smiles all around!

About Carousel of Happiness

The Carousel of Happiness is a 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to inspiring happiness, well-being, and service to others through stories and experiences. Located in Nederland, Colorado, the Carousel of Happiness is a magical menagerie featuring 56 whimsical, hand-carved animals on a restored 1910 Looff carousel, turning to the music of a 1913 Wurlitzer band organ. This unique, participatory piece of folk art is a living piece of history. Owing its creation to local sculptor Scott Harrison and to the generosity of thousands of donors and visitors inspired by his work, the Carousel is multigenerational, nostalgic and new — an experience of simple joy for people of all ages!

We are so thankful to all of the Carousel's supporters who have donated generously to our auction. New this year are "experience packages" showcasing one of a kind experiences within our amazing community here in Nederland, Colorado. Auction items are available for need to live local. These have been designed as perfect additions to your next trip to our beautiful and quirky little mountain town. We hope you like what we have put together!
