Areas of Opportunity in Northern Colorado

Howdy Neighbor Events was founded to create and support events in the areas of art, entrepreneurship, literacy, education, and popular culture.

Having spent the last few years in Northern Colorado working on inclusive, representative, and diverse events, it was time to formalize a focused, repeatable, sustainable framework through a nonprofit organization to build and support these events on a regular basis.

The work of community-minded pioneers, my teams from Fort Collins Comic Con, Fort Collins Startup Week, BrainChange, and Ignite Fort Collins, is something that could only be sustained long-term through the focused effort of a coordinating nonprofit partner working alongside the dedicated staff of the City of Fort Collins, Poudre River Public Library District, small business partners, and other non-profits.

That’s where Howdy Neighbor Events comes in – to bridge the best intentions of larger partners having wide focus areas with the logistical and operational expertise of a nimble events management team.

While our focus is on providing operational excellence for our current events: Fort Collins Comic Con, Fort Collins Startup Week, and BrainChange, we are always on the lookout for new and exciting opportunities to make an impact in Northern Colorado.

Please reach out to us if you believe we can be of assistance to you and your community.
