Colorado Council of Arts, Science and Culture
We’re Dreaming Big For All Communities
Keeping the Arts Alive
Focused on Growing Minds
The CASC is made up of nine board members and four officers. We are a very experienced group with various business backgrounds. Most importantly, are our years and years of community involvement. Many of our board members are also art, science and cultural based in our daily work lives. A great source!
We have an established history of over 10 years in the local community. In the performing Arts, we focus on bringing some of the finest musical member performances that help enhance the greater Parker area .From Wine Walks to the Community stage at Parker Days, to concerts.
We are branching further out to the sciences by supporting programs in local front range areas that feature activity for youth who want to enrich their minds. We’re looking to build our science program support up to be one of the leading programs in the state.
Within every community, there needs to be culture and cultural awareness. Our two fundraising programs bring just that to our communities. We have two celebrations each year that bring out the flavor of true cultural heritage.Oktoberfest and Mardi Gras!
CASC Grows Its Cultural Fundraising Event

Admission is free for our family-friendly German-themed festival. The event includes a number of fun activities for children, great things to do for adults, and is family friendly. We will also have kids rides including an obstacle course, bungee tramp, a slide and much more! The festival boasts unique vendors that are new to the festival this year and a variety of activities for children.
The Annual Parker Oktoberfest will be held starting Friday, September 14th, with “Pre -Rocktoberfest” from 6:00 -10:30pm. Saturday, September 16, from 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. and Sunday, September 17, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Every fourth Friday during the Summer and Fall, the Parker Chamber hosts the local downtown Wine Walks which are heavily attended and amply festive!

Today’s youth is tomorrow’s talent. Join us the first Tuesday of every month as the talented youth from throughout the area converge on Takoda’s Bar and Grill to test out their pipes from a public location. Always a favorite, our youth karaoke night never fails to deliver a discovery of talent new, and improved each and every month.
We have sponsored science programs in the past ( Astronomy) and are presently looking to partner with local area science groups whom may need that added value that an organization can bring to help them grow! If you’re currently holding a program or would like to pitch us an idea for a Science based program, then please contact us at 303-261-8059.
