Since 1968, the Pikes Peak Arts Council's mission has been to advocate for and support the artists and arts organizations of the Pikes Peak region.

A 501(c)3 organization, we offer microgrants for all disciplines as well as fiscal sponsorships for qualifying arts projects and organizations.

Our signature events include the Pikes Peak Arts Council Awards for Excellence in the Arts created in 2000 to recognize and honor the artists, performers and arts collaborators in our community.

The Pikes Peak Art & Music Festival, another of our signature events, is in its 10th year and provides an unequaled opportunity to showcase our inspiring and diverse arts community.  Held on 4th of July weekend, this event is known as the downtown Colorado Springs arts and entertainment festival of the summer. This festival takes place in the shadow of Pikes Peak in America the Beautiful Park and is a great chance to show our beautiful community off to visitors, family and friends.

We invite you to learn more about Pikes Peak Arts Council (PPAC), our mission and our history. The more you know about PPAC, the more you can help tell the story of why the arts are critical in defining our community and our region.  We endeavor to produce the highest quality programming meant to recognize, honor and support our regional artists and arts organizations.

We are involved with artist's matters, because artists matter!
