Join us for our closing event Cósmico Americas, an epic party culminating the Biennial of the Americas Festival. Cósmico Americas is a complete takeover of Civic Center Park in Downtown Denver. Join the party as we open our arms to the public for an unforgettable evening of music, art, dancing, lights, and so much more. Cósmico will feature Jaguara: a spectacular light and sound show and the artistic centerpiece of our festival.
The Biennial of the Americas is an international fusion of art, music, culture and thought-leadership built to unify North and South America. We’re committed to convening and connecting leaders from the business, academic, civic and cultural sectors who make solutions to our shared challenges a reality. Formed around the transformational idea that the North-South axis across the Americas is a vast and largely untapped resource for business, cultural and social opportunities, we assemble the most innovative leaders in the western hemisphere for the only festival in the world focused exclusively on the Americas.
Since its inception in 2010, Biennial of the Americas has been dedicated to creating a more prosperous future for all citizens of the Americas. To accomplish this mission, Biennial has inspired creative solution-making amongst global leaders in the fields of business, workforce development, entrepreneurship, and trade to provoke conversation and to jump-start international investments.
The Biennial recognizes that a sustainable world is the foundation for progress in the Western Hemisphere and beyond. Our goal is to facilitate smart growth by connecting advocates in communities across the Americas in order to magnify their impact. Our plan involves mitigating the impact of physical and political barriers to promote cohesion and prosperity while eliminating conflict.
The Biennial understands that strong partnerships begin with strong relationships. Our cultural programs celebrate the shared heritage of the Americas, recognizing that our closest neighbors are also our strongest trading partners and closest friends. We host international summits to find cohesion in culture, and gather to celebrate that culture every other year in Denver, CO.
