Aurora Cinco De Mayo
May 5th and 6th, 2018!


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 are a 501c3 non-profit organization. Donations to ACAD are tax deductible. 

2018 marks the celebration of our first Cinco De Mayo for the Aurora Community. It will be held in downtown Aurora right in Fletcher Plaza which is located at 9898 E. Colfax Avenue on May 5th and 6th, 2018.


 This event is being organized as a response to residents asking for their own Cinco de Mayo event in Aurora. ACAD is home to a culturally diverse mix of people from all ethnicities with over 100 languages spoken within its vicinity. We are excited to provide numerous outlets for our residents to celebrate and embrace this diversity. All of ACAD’s events bring a broad mix of entertainment; including great music, games, arts and crafts activities, dance, theater, and cultural performances. 

ACAD is a leader in offering opportunities for Aurora’s creatives and small business owners from all backgrounds. By increasing utilization of our beautiful and centrally located community gathering space, we bring in new talent, business and opportunities to this Urban Renewal zone of the downtown Aurora area.
