About Steamboat Springs Arts Council
The Steamboat Springs Arts Council was the first organization in Steamboat specifically created as a community-gathering place to celebrate and support the arts. In 2017, they spearheaded the effort to have Steamboat designated a Creative District by Colorado Creative Industries under the governor’s office of economic development. Creative Districts are economic drivers for the town, giving exposure to artists and creatives through marketing and branding the town to visitors interested in arts, culture, and heritage. The first step in reaching the goals for this designation is to launch SteamboatCreates, an arts and culture hub for the community and visitors.
Since the Arts Council was founded in 1972, they established signature events that reach beyond Steamboat including Art in the Park. Cabaret, an irreverent theater, pokes fun at history and heritage. Young At Art Camps let kids of all socio-economic levels have the opportunity to express themselves through art and creativity.
