The Highlands Ranch Cultural Affairs Association's (CAA) mission is to provide educational opportunities through artistic, musical, theatrical, and dance events, and to advance and preserve the natural and cultural history of Highlands Ranch residents and the surrounding communities.
The Highlands Ranch Cultural Affairs Association (CAA) was created in 2001 as a result of community members and volunteers seeing the need to provide rich cultural, educational, and entertainment experiences that would give value to the community and enhance the quality of life right here in Highlands Ranch.
Since its inception, the CAA offerings cultural opportunities for the community of Highlands Ranch as well as residents of northern Douglas County. Some programs that the CAA offers are the Winter Cultural Series, Chinese New Year, Family Magic Show, Hooked on Fishing, Ladies' Fishing on the Fly, Classic Car Show, the Culture on the Green Series, the Summer Concert Series, Jazz at the Mansion, Highlands Ranch Days, Oktoberfest, and Classical Music Series, just to name a few. The CAA also funds in part The Highlands Ranch Encore Chorale, numerous dance, art, and theater classes. The CAA has access to 8,200 acres of pristine wilderness area called the Backcountry Wilderness Area. It is the perfect venue in which the CAA can offer programs that teach children and adults about ecology, conservation, and wildlife habits and habitats.
Moving forward, the CAA will continue to bring diverse, quality cultural programming to northern Douglas County residents.
Highlands Ranch is a unique community of over 30,000 families, with its aim to "build the lifestyle residents want to live." We're fortunate to be supported by the Cultural Affairs Association, staffed by professionals and volunteers, who strive to fulfill the aesthetic and intellectual side of the theme. Extensive, artistically-rich programs are produced year-round, and the community enthusiastically enjoys them free or at very little cost. Without this, one would need frequent travel and plenty of money to match our local CAA's excellence.-Larry Perkins
Attention to cultural events make a community an attractive place. Providing educational, artistic, musical, and theatrical events entertain the whole community. Through CAA, young and old, and those with diverse ethnic background have enjoyed varieties of cultural activities.-Manijeh Badiozamani
