Q: What is Streetmosphere?
A: Streetmosphere, Beet Street’s signature cultural program, transforms Fort Collins into a spontaneous, outdoor performing arts festival all summer long. Streetmosphere provides high quality, free performances that boasts civic pride for our local, creative talent. In 2010 and 2011, Streetmosphere auditioned and hired more than 100 local acts including classical, jazz, country, bluegrass, and pop singers, musicians and bands; dancers, actors, comedians, jugglers, magicians, painters, weavers, and even a cowboy poet. Attendance and excitement about Streetmosphere has grown exponentially - in 2010, 60,000 people stopped and watched performances; in 2011, more than 120,000 residents and visitors participated. Participation grew in 2012 with 150,000 attendees, and in 2013 reached an all-time high of 160,000 attendees. Downtown businesses report that the vibrant activity of Streetmosphere has increased foot traffic and sales.
