Since its founding in 1977, Westword has carved out a place in the cultural firmament of the Mile High City.

Thanks to our early commitment to digital journalism, attracts more than 1.5 million monthly active users. They’re joined by more than 278,000 monthly print readers who consider the publication an unparalleled source of information and insight, from politics and business to music and the arts. Our annual Best of Denver issue is a must-read for residents and visitors alike and our Top 100 Restaurants and Top 100 Bars lists have become the definitive source for exploring the city’s dynamic dining and drinking scene. We also provide the city’s most reliable coverage of the burgeoning cannabis industry.

Westword further gives back to the city with live events such as September’s Westword Music Showcase, a two-day extravaganza in the RiNo Art District that presents national headliners, scores of Denver’s best local bands, and other artists. In June, we highlight Denver’s favorite food at Tacolandia; in October, we broaden the menu to shine the spotlight on Denver’s entire dining scene at Feast.
