WELCOME!

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.

Everything that’s happening this October can be found from the HIGHLIGHTS and EVENTS tabs, above. There are more Arts Month opportunities to discover from the GIVEAWAYS and MERCH tabs. And, you’ll find additional information ABOUT Arts Month as you continue to explore this website.

Despite the challenges and uncertainties caused by the pandemic, our 8th annual Arts Month celebration is shaping-up to be one of our biggest and best ever! Throughout the entire month, we invite you to enjoy the amazing talent and diversity of our creative community, and encourage you to use the information and opportunities on this website to “have one new cultural experience with family or friends this October!”
