Peak Radar is the Cultural Office’s flagship program to connect residents and visitors with the vibrant arts community of the Pikes Peak region. The program includes managing and growing PeakRadar.com (our region’s premier online cultural calendar), publishing weekly e-blasts of upcoming events to over 15,000 recipients, engaging users across five social media platforms, producing cultural guides in print, promoting local arts & culture to radio stations and media partners, and connecting personally through summer arts outreach booths. It employs proven strategies across digital, print and in person platforms to improve marketing for cultural activities and reduce barriers to access for all citizens and tourists. For the public, Peak Radar is a digital cultural center. For the local creative community, it is an entire marketing department offered free of charge.
Listing your community event, cultural organization, performance venue, or artist profile is free and easy, and can be done directly from the PeakRadar.com website. If you need assistance using the site, please email our Peak Radar staff or call our helpline at 719-634-5155.

Diverse partnerships with community organizations like the Colorado Springs Sports Corp, the Pikes Peak Library District, the YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region, School District 11, School District 14, School District 2, and others, help to drive new audiences to the website, and to provide exciting opportunities for collaboration and cross-promotion. PeakRadar.com also powers the digital event calendars of the Colorado Springs Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, the Colorado Springs Downtown Partnership, Pikes Peak Country Attractions, ChooseColoradoSprings.com, and Springs Magazine. Please contact Angela Seals to request pricing and additional information about the possibilities of plugging our customizable event feeds into your website.
Finally, Peak Radar’s audience development program also includes a weekly Peak Radar Picks e-blasts, which highlights eight to ten upcoming community events each week on Wednesday. Please click here if you’d like to start receiving the Peak Radar Picks email every week. We also have a great Guest Curator program that enables a different community member to help make selections for our weekly e-blast. Anyone is welcome to be a Guest Curator, and you are more than welcome to promote your own events. To find out more about being a Guest Curator for a future Peak Radar Picks email, please contact Jonathan Toman.
Peak Radar is our region’s most powerful tool to connect residents and visitors with arts & culture throughout the year, digitally, in person, and in print. We reach potential audiences where they are with dynamic tools to build a more culturally-engaged Pikes Peak region.
