La Veta Creative District
The La Veta Creative District is a hub of arts and cultural activity located on the Highway of Legends, a Colorado Scenic Byway nestled below the majestic Spanish Peaks. Early traders built Francisco Fort in 1862, which served as a trading source for Denver. Since then, the area has served as a destination for an eclectic mix of artists, photographers, musicians, thespians, dancers, writers, practitioners of the healing arts, and to people seeking a creative experience.
There is truly an eclectic mix of cultural opportunities here: from poetry readings to a wide range of musical concerts to art exhibitions in every medium. It is as if life slows down and becomes more focused here, allowing a real peace to flourish, creativity to blossom and a sense of well-being to grow in every person.
