How Well Do You Know Greeley?

  • We're getting bigger and better all the time.

    Greeley's population is now estimated to be over 100,000, a huge increase from the 1990 population of 60,536. Greeley has grown, but not just in population.  We’re bigger, more interesting, and more diverse than ever before. 

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

    Where do we start? There’s the list of signature events like the UNC/Greeley Jazz Fest,  Greeley Stampede, Arts Picnic, Blues Jam, Weld County Fair and Oktobrewfest. But then you can’t forget the High Plains Chautauqua, Neighborhood Nights, Agriculture Feast and Fest, the Great Greeley Chalk-a-Lot, and the University of Northern Colorado and the Union Colony Civic Center seasons of performances. Top that off with the Greeley Chorale, Friday Fests, First Fridays, UNC Homecoming week, the Ice Haus , the Poudre River Trail, a full schedule of events at the Moxi Theater and other music venues, and the calendar starts getting very full, very fast. In fact, the list is so long; we can only mention a few in this list.

    Great things are always going on in Greeley.
