One site in the region provides a cornucopia of events listings

One helpful resource for visitors and residents alike is the event database PeakRadar, overseen by the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region. Search gallery shows, family events, concerts, and festivals coming up tomorrow all the way through the end of the year. Events are submitted by promoters and organizers, then edited and posted online. In 2015, it hosted 4,146 events — a 150-percent increase over 2014 — meaning there’s plenty to do in the Pikes Peak Region.

Beginning in May, the site will revamp to a responsive design (making it friendlier on mobile), redesigned share buttons, and new features like user accounts to allow for personalization (syncing to calendars, or bookmarking events) and a new category devoted exclusively to free events.

PeakRadar, which is free to browse, isn’t limited to events. It also provides a public art directory and guides for artists, organizations and venues.

Event categories also include “Family Fun,” “Poetry, Prose & Comedy,” “Sports & recreation” and “History & Heritage,” making the site a nearly comprehensive resource for visitors as well as locals, whether you’e planning an itinerary or just looking for spur-of-the-moment inspiration to do something.
