Starting on October 1st, Arts Month 2021 will feature our program called “Artist-of-the-Day!” During each of the 31 days in October, we’ll introduce you to a different artist, performer, or creative from our local community. In addition to photos and brief bios here on ArtsOctober.com, we’ll have links to their personal websites and social media pages, as well as more in-depth profiles written by the Cultural Office and our content partners at Humanitou and My Black Colorado. In addition, we’ll be showcasing specially created digital content from many of these amazing artists on PeakRadar.com’s Facebook and Instagram pages throughout the month of October! After their 24 hours in the Arts Month 2021 spotlight, all featured artists will be added to the Artist-of-the-Day Archives.

This October, arts & culture takes center stage throughout Colorado Springs and across the Pikes Peak region, as our creative community celebrates Arts Month 2021!
Orchestrated annually by the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region, Arts Month elevates the visibility of arts & culture across El Paso and Teller Counties by showcasing local talent, providing opportunities for arts advocacy, supporting innovative cross-sector community collaborations, and creating new avenues for arts engagement and cultural enrichment.
As we all look ahead with hope and optimism, and work together to recover from the many challenges of the past year and a half, our 8th annual Arts Month will be more important than ever. Planning is well underway, and it’s already shaping-up to be an amazing celebration of local creativity, with lots of new and exciting ways for community members and visitors to “have one new cultural experience with family or friends this October!” Learn more about Arts Month 2021.
Be Creative All Year!
Even when it’s not #ArtsOctober, the arts community of the Pikes Peak region invites you to express yourself and get involved in our vibrant virtual & in-person events! Visit PeakRadar.com to connect to the cultural calendar plus giveaways and multimedia throughout the year.
