From the Greeley Creative District Board

Greeley Creative District encompasses the contiguous areas of Greeley Downtown and the neighborhoods including and surrounding the University of Northern Colorado. It is a dynamic, diverse, active and arts-rich area where people live, work, create, innovate, learn, shop, dine, gather and play.

Our mission is to enhance the community’s distinctive creative identity and increase its economic vitality. The District provides educational and promotional support to engage the full spectrum of creative industries, organizations, businesses, and artists. Further, the District celebrates cultural heritage, inspires youth, and promotes patrons for emerging talents.
