Located at almost 9,000′, the historic mining town of Creede can be found among the San Juan Mountains in southwest Colorado along the gorgeous Silver Thread Scenic Byway. Featuring 96% public lands, Mineral County boasts endless outdoor recreation and enjoyment possibilities. What do we do for fun here?! Oh, how about some hiking, fishing the Rio Grande River and headwaters, a wide variety of winter sports, and scenic drives looking for moose! Creede also hosts several annual events including the Taste of Creede, Donkey Dash, July 4th Street Festival and Parade, Woodcarvers Rendezvous, Rock and Mineral Show, Headwaters Music Festival, Salsa Fiesta, Cruisin’ the Canyon Car Show, Chocolate Festival, and Golden Pick Pond Hockey Tournament. Our quaint town of 300 full-time residents is home for two stages of the renowned Creede Repertory Theatre, as well as lodging, several unique shops, art galleries and restaurants that are open year-round.
We invite you to visit Creede, host your event here, and discover why we think our community is The LAST Great Place!
