West of 105 Magazine - - Culture & Events -

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.
