Arts & Culture
A Cultural Hotspot...
Pueblo, Colorado has been the center of local trade and gossip since its founding in the late 1800’s. Today, old mercantile stores and Victorian homes house galleries, restaurants and shops. The Native American, Spanish colonists and Anglo adventurers who settled here, have all added to the unique “Puebloan” culture found fascinating by artists, poets and lovers. Pueblo’s galleries delight art collectors seeking paintings, sculptures & fine crafts. The arts have always played a profound role in Pueblo’s cultural character.
Art museums, book readings, live theater, clubs and concerts, the 24 hour film festival, and the abundant weekly art happenings in Pueblo make the city a cultural hotspot for locals and visitor alike. The Pueblo, Colorado that we know today owes its character to the artistic traditions that span the centuries and the diverse cultural groups that have called the city their home. It is impossible to give credit to the myriad of artists and influences that have touched the community over time.
Music literally fills the air in Pueblo, ranging from the renowned Sangre de Cristo Arts and Conference Center, the Frontier Airlines Events Stage along the Pueblo Riverwalk, to the limitless number of musicians that perform in the local coffee shops, pubs, and street corners downtown.
All of this has made Pueblo one of the most unique and enchanting places for people to live and visit over the last century.
