Cultural Affairs Association Events

Since 2001, The Highlands Ranch Cultural Affairs Association (CAA) has been the cultural foundation for Highlands Ranch. Each year since then, the CAA has provided educational and entertainment programming through 40+ free and low cost art, music, theater, dance, history and nature events. 

Our desire each year is to provide a culturally rich variety of programs which represent our diverse community. We recognize the importance of DEIA (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Accessibility) and work to incorporate these elements into our planning and staffing for programs and events. We strive to make sure our community members are represented and all attendees feel welcome at our events.

The Highlands Ranch Cultural Affairs Association (CAA) provides a central organization from which educational, artistic, musical, theatrical, and dance events are provided to the more than 105,000 Highlands Ranch residents and those living in the surrounding communities.
