What you'll do

Your tour of Denver’s art scene in the hip and happening River North (RiNo) Arts District begins at Denver’s Central Market. This hub of the city’s Art District offers everything from creative ice cream flavors (dare to try the whiskey and pistachio combo?) to a variety of locally-sourced and fair trade products. Your guide will fill you in on the fascinating history of the Market and why it’s the perfect kick-off to your art experience.

From there, you’ll make your way through the mural-covered streets of RiNo. Having recently seen a boom of revitalization, this part of Denver is now a canvas for creative souls of all types. As you walk, you’ll be struck by the incredible colors, scale, and variety of the art. Your guide will highlight styles ranging from graffiti to massive murals to brain-bending 3D installations. You’ll get to know the stories behind the art, including environmental activism, social causes, music, and inspirational figures. You may get the chance to enter one of RiNo’s dynamic art studio spaces.

Throughout your tour, you will hear about one of the some of the most exciting art events on Denver’s calendar - including the CRUSH Walls festival. You’ll witness its impact on the neighborhood, not just during the week-long festival, but throughout the entire year. Your tour ticket includes a donation to an organization directly supporting local Denver artists.

I've had a lifelong passion for revitalized spaces and neighborhoods - and Denver's RiNo Arts District is one of the best examples of this in the entire country! I love to show visitors the hidden gems throughout the neighborhood and tell them how the area has changed and grown over the years. I've taken the time to get to know some of the incredible artists and the stories behind the countless murals and works of street art - things you won't learn from a guidebook. I've also enjoyed getting involved in the CRUSH Walls Festival, which is why I'm so proud that part of the price of this tour includes a donation to this amazing program supporting young Denver artists.

Where you'll be

The RiNo Arts District is filled with hidden gems and hide-away treasures. I've scouted this neighborhood and will show off my favorite works of art throughout the area - some of them are in pretty surprising spots! New art is constantly going up, so I'm always on the lookout for a new tour stop. I'll also take you to the very popular Central Market for one of my favorite treats. If possible, I'll even take you inside an artist studio space!

Rated 4.80 out of 5 from 5 reviews.

Fun and entertaining. My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our guide and all of her knowledge. Great pace and packed full of great art. Would highly recommend if you are at all interested in street art.

For anyone wanting to dive deep into denver's graffiti culture, this is the tour to take. You go right into the heart of RiNo; you get exposed to an array of local artists, as well as international artists that have visited. Alot of the artists my husband have been following for years had pieces showcased on this tour, and it was wonderful to know Denver brings and attracts artists from all over the world.

Very much worth experiencing. I’ve gone to mural tours in other cities, but I truly enjoyed Denver’s scene. As far as the tour itself our guide was engaging. We did have an issue with meeting, the wrong message was sent to my group instructing us to meet at the incorrect location. Lee offered to Uber us to the correct meeting spot, where our guide very nicely bought us all coffee’s, and gave us a ride back to our vehicles after the tour. The whole ordeal put us an hour behind, but I was very appreciative of the effort put into rectifying the situation. Despite all that, I would recommend the experience and would do it again! (Maybe just message them to double check the address lol)
