How Well Do You Know Greeley?

  • We’re getting bigger all the time.

    Greeley's population is now estimated to be over 100,000, but there are still very few traffic jams and rarely a need to wait at the same red light more than once. Getting from one side of town to the other is a piece of cake. There are definitely people in other cities who are jealous. And that's ok.

  • Where to go, what to do, who to see.

    Where do we start? The events just keep multiplying—there’s the list of signature events like the Greeley Stampede, Arts Picnic, Blues Jam, Weld County Fair and Oktobrewfest. But then you can’t forget the High Plains Chautauqua, Neighborhood Nights, University of Northern Colorado and the Union Colony Civic Center season of performances. Top that off with the Greeley Chorale, Greeley Children’s Chorale, Friday Fests, First Fridays and UNC Homecoming week, and a full schedule of events at the Moxi Theater, and the calendar starts getting very full very fast. In fact, the list is so long, we can only mentioning a few in this list.

    You can plan your day, week, month and season around all the great things going on in Greeley.
