Denver Biennial of the Americas

The Biennial of the Americas is a week-long festival of ideas, arts and culture held in Denver every two years. Established in 2010 by Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper while he was the Mayor of Denver, along with other leaders in the arts and business in the region, the organization was created to recognize and build upon the important economic and cultural ties in the Americas.

The goal of Biennial of the Americas is to bring together innovative leaders from across the Western Hemisphere for activities and events to accelerate and transform how we do business and live together.

The Biennial recently began creating year-round programming, including a monthly podcast with KUNC that helps build awareness and more sustained connections across the Americas.

Bonfils-Stanton Foundation helped fund the 2017 Denver “pop-up” version of Fabrica de Arte Cubano (Cuban Art Factory – FAC), during the run of the festival, and the September 15 Biennial Night street party at the FAC.
