MANCOS CREATIVE ART DISTRICT
Between the La Plata Mountains and Mesa Verde, Mancos is home to lots of creative people - artists, inventors, craftsmen, foodies and more. The Mancos Creative District spans several blocks downtown and is packed with creativity. There are eight galleries, artisan cooperatives, a thriving common press, craftsmen, artists, musicians, brewers, chefs, an amazing collection of buildings from the late 1800's and the town's historic opera house, the Palace Theatre which opened on September 2, 1926. And it is still in use, welcoming more than 73,000 patrons at 100+ events each year.
