Looking for great theater, music, or art? Arvada boasts the nationally-renowned Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities, which offers year-round concerts and performances in theater and dance; art exhibitions; a history museum; and classes in ceramics, dance, writing, acting, and the visual and musical arts.

In 2016, the Arvada City Council created the Arvada Arts and Culture Commission. The goal of the commission is to create a strategic plan for public art in the community as well as to foster closer relationships with all artists living and working in Arvada.
