Keeping the Arts Alive

Focused on Growing Minds

… and Exposing Our Communities to Culture

The Council

The CASC is made up of nine board members and four officers. We are a very experienced group with various business backgrounds, but most importantly years and years of community involvement.

The Arts

As the former Parker Arts Council, we have an established history of 10 years in the community for bringing some of the finest community theatre to the area in addition to musical performances that enhance our area.

The Sciences

We are branching further out to the sciences by offering programs in astronomy, local robotics and soon in the world of bee’s! We’re looking to build our science programs up to be one of the leading programs in the state for both youth and adults.

The Culture

Within every community, there needs to be culture and cultural awareness. Our two fundraising programs bring just that to our community. We have two celebrations each year that bring out the flavor of true cultural heritage.

Parker Oktoberfest: Steeped in Tradition

September 20 – 21 , 2014. A Weekend to Remember

In celebration of German heritage and traditions, we will be celebrating the Parker Oktoberfest.  The annual fundraising cultural event will feature live German music, Bavarian dancers, a Biergarten featuring three Paulaner beers – Hefeweizen, Oktoberfest Marzen, and Premium Pilsener, a number of competitions, and delicious German food.

Admission is free for our family-friendly German-themed festival.  The event includes a number of fun activities for children, great things to do for adults, and is family friendly. We will also have kids rides including an obstacle course, bungee tramp, a slide and much more!  The festival boasts over 100 total vendors and a variety of activities for children.

The 9th Annual Parker Oktoberfest will be held on Saturday, September 20, from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Sunday, September 21, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Parker Mayor Mike Waid will preside over the opening ceremony and mini-parade. There will also be an opportunity to meet the Colorado Council of Arts, Science and Cultures Miss Oktoberfest.

This year promises to be even more exciting than last with additional German entertainment, extra seating to see the bands, new activities for children, and a Saturday evening performance!
