We’re excited to share that the Fort Collins Book Festival is a recipient of two-years of Colorado Creates grant funding from Colorado Creative Industries (CCI) in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). The grant funds are awarded for two years for a total of $8,000 in support.

The Colorado Creates grant provides support for nonprofit organizations and communities to produce arts and cultural activities, impacting people and enhancing the quality of life. The Fort Collins Book Festival has received two years of funding support through the grant to enable us to continue to build a premier literary arts and culture festival in northern Colorado.


CCI focuses on “strengthening the vitality of visual, performing and literary arts through promotion, resources and funding opportunities. We believe in bold innovation and the invaluable contributions the arts bring to this beautiful state.”

We appreciate CCI and NEA’s continued commitment to all aspects of creative arts throughout Colorado and especially here in Fort Collins.
