The City of Denver is known for a number of things. It’s dubbed the Mile-High City for its high-altitude (one mile up, to be exact), though its proximity to the Rocky Mountains also garners it plenty of notoriety. Denver is also known for its sports teams and its love of craft beer and, of course, for being one of the first places where recreational cannabis could be purchased and consumed legally. It’s a great town, and while diversity could be a little better (only about 19% of the current population is non-white), there are some great sites of interest for us Latinxs looking to explore with our roots in mind. The next time you’re in town, make sure to give these Latinx-spaces some love.
Located in the Santa Fe Arts District, Su Teatro is a long-beloved destination for Latinx folks to enjoy live theatrical performances, plus Spanish-language film (Thursdays are XicanIndie Movie Nights!) and even an annual Chicano Music Festival. They also give back to the community by way of the Cultural Arts Education Institute, which provides free after-school theater programs for youth, plus workshops, school touring shows, and more.
