Since its Wild West beginnings, Denver has attracted people from a variety of cultures who've created a rich tapestry.
The rich ethnic history and diverse cultural heritage of the city are celebrated with a number of events throughout the year, from the nation's largest Cinco de Mayo celebration in the spring to the Longs Peak Scottish Irish Festival in the fall. Summer brings the Colorado Gay Rodeo and Denver PrideFest, a celebration of community and culture. The historically rich African-American Five Points neighborhood is home to the Black American West Museum (3091 California St.), while the Museo de las Americas (861 Santa Fe Dr.) hosts some of the world's top contemporary artists from Latin America. A trip to The Mile High City will find no shortage of year-round ways to celebrate diversity.
