After a brief hibernation this Winter, Entertaining Fort Collins is back to bust up boredom, offer constructive criticism, and dig deeper into the choice community’s entertainment options tell the stories you want to read about Fort Collins music, art, and entertainment.
The timing of this re-launch is not a coincidence. Fort Collins is enjoying more national attention than ever for our cultural accomplishments. More and more people acknowledge something special is happening here. Visitors and relocating artists alike draw comparisons between Fort Collins today and the early days of now-developed cultural destinations like Portland, Seattle and Austin. So, while we’re still several hundred thousand people shy of those communities, we have a very exciting and unique cultural life surrounding us—and it is developing rapidly.
The output of thousands of musicians, hundreds of visual and performing artists, and scores of community events each month can be difficult to navigate. If you’re lucky, you have a close friend who stays plugged in to all of it and can tip you off about the best of what’s happening any time. You can think of Entertaining Fort Collins as that friend. I love to help Fort Collins discover, discuss and enjoy our local entertainment options.
In addition to interviews, reviews and recommendations, here are five posts to come:
