About Us

Good Times, For Good

Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Denver Performing Arts Complex, Colorado Convention Center, Denver Coliseum, and McNichols Civic Center Building are pillars of our community’s arts and culture scene. These venues are owned by the City and County of Denver and operated by Denver Arts & Venues, a unique City agency that uses proceeds from events — not government funding — to operate and maintain these facilities. Ticket and venue fees, sponsorships, venue rentals, concessions and parking are also paid forward and used to further enrich Denver’s art community and provide access to art for all through free and low cost community and cultural events, grants for artists and arts organizations, public art, and art education. Every good time at one of Denver’s venues promotes thriving communities, enriches Denver through arts and culture, and helps ensure our legendary entertainment spaces stay that way, for good.

The McNichols Civic Center Building is located at the northwest corner of Civic Center Park, at the intersection of Colfax and Bannock. In 1909, the cornerstone of the building was laid, setting the foundation for the then Carnegie Library that would become a center of learning in the park. That tradition continues, as the building was re-opened in 2012 as a contemporary hub for arts and culture for the people of Denver. This stunning Greek Revival building with its classic Corinthian columns and iconic colonnade across its front, offers new experiences in a classic space.
