Downtown Longmont is infused with arts, entertainment and culture – allowing visitors to turn everyday life into a memorable experience. A purchase is more than a monetary transaction, a walk is more than a commute and a meal is more than just an every day occurrence. Downtown Longmont is filled with inspiring architecture, interactive retail stores, eclectic dining and great art venues. It mixes historic charm and character with modern style and convenience.
Downtown Longmont is the hub for enjoying, creating and learning about whatever artistic medium moves you! Two community theaters, seven stores that offer music lessons, a dance studio, countless workshops and hands-on sessions at our galleries as well as interactive retail stores, allowing locals and visitors to learn or create their own masterpiece! If your idea of creativity is ordering a great dinner/drink combination before you hear live music or theater, than Downtown Longmont is also the place for you! With more than 25 restaurants and a growing calendar of events – being a patron is always an exciting way to spend your time!
The community of Longmont designated Downtown Longmont as its new Arts and Entertainment District (Creative District). After three years of implementation, creativity has been owned by the district - with businesses, services, government, artists and investors thinking and making decisions creatively. To be reflective of the new district identity of own downtown, becoming the Downtown Longmont Creative District is more encompassing. It is well on its way to reaching that collective vision.
