About the District

The Aurora Cultural Arts District (ACAD) is a partnership of creative enterprises, individuals, local businesses, area residents and the City of Aurora whose mission is to enhance the district’s neighborhoods and market it as a destination through a variety of cultural and educational experiences.

The Aurora Culture Arts District provides events for artists to share their work with the community via our annual Aurora Art Festival and other special events throughout the year. We support the arts in the community. You can find listings of ongoing activity in the ACAD throughout our website.

In March, 2012 the Aurora Cultural Arts District was designated as a prospective Creative District! We are excited about the support and techincal assistance we are able to receive for further ACAD planning. Interested in getting involved in ACAD? Email our Managing Director Tracy Weil.
