Cinco de Mayo Festival in Denver, Colorado

Denver Diversity

Denver has always attracted a variety of cultures and created a rich tapestry before it was a city. Celebrate diversity during a trip to The Mile High City!

Denver celebrates its diverse cultural heritage with a number of events throughout the year. From the annual Denver March Powwow, celebrating American Indian/Indigenous culture (see the land acknowledgment below), to the nation's largest Cinco de Mayo celebration in the spring and the Colorado Irish Festival in the summer, Denver is a city of many colors and cultures.

The Colorado Gay Rodeo and Denver PrideFest are celebrations of inclusiveness and acceptance. The historically rich African American Five Points neighborhood is home to the Black American West Museum and the Five Points Jazz Festival, while the Museo de las Americas in the Art District on Santa Fe showcases the work of the world's top contemporary artists from Latin America. And check out the Denver Little Black Book, which showcases the metro area's African American community and provides information on things to do, places to go and services for visitors.

The City of Denver has launched a first-of-its-kind initiative called Denver in Context. It's a series of studies that highlights various cultures and communities and helps the city with preservation planning. 

Denver is an open city and wants everyone to enjoy it. For people with disabilities and impairments, see our accessibility guide to the city's biggest attractions. 

Land Acknowledgment

This land acknowledgment serves to disrupt the invisibility and ongoing erasure of Indigenous people.

“We must acknowledge with respect that the land on which we stand, live, and learn, is the traditional territory of the Ute, Cheyenne and Arapaho Peoples. We also recognize the 48 contemporary tribal nations that are historically tied to the lands that make up the state of Colorado.


We must honor Elders past, present, and future, and those who have stewarded this land throughout generations. We also recognize that government, academic and cultural institutions, our nation, were founded upon and continue to enact exclusions and erasures of Indigenous Peoples.


May this acknowledgment demonstrate a commitment to working to dismantle ongoing legacies of settler colonialism, oppression and inequities, and to recognize the hundreds of Indigenous Nations who continue to resist, live, create, and uphold their sacred relations across their lands. We intentionally honor and celebrate the Indigenous communities in our City and express our gratitude for their ongoing contributions. Let’s not forget that this land was theirs, long before we made it ours.”
