About Art District on Santa Fe.jpg
 
 

This a community rich in heritage. A home for artists.
This is Denver's Art District on Santa Fe.

Denver’s Art District on Santa Fe (ADSF) is a nationally known arts and cultural district, encompassing hundreds of artists, galleries, studios, theaters, and creative businesses along Santa Fe Drive in Denver, Colorado. Founded in 2003, ADSF is a 501(c)(3), nonprofit membership organization and one of the first Certified Creative Districts in the state.

Historically anchored by pioneering spirit, ADSF has long-championed citizen creativity as a cultural crossroads of the city. Thousands visit from the Rocky Mountain region and beyond during the monthly First Friday Art Walks to experience the highest density of art galleries in the country.

While our name is rooted in the arts, we’re not only a creative community. Our District reflects the neighborhood’s rich, cultural fabric—a symbol of our storied past and bright future. Steeped in Latino heritage and today representing a diverse population, we aim to honor our heritage and support creativity. For all. 

Welcome to our community—Denver’s gateway to art and culture.
