PeakRadar Logo

PeakRadar.com is COPPeR’s signature audience development program. The site, a comprehensive arts, culture community events calendar, is a vital tool for increasing cultural participation. Since its launch in June 2007, PeakRadar.com has brought awareness of a vast array of arts activities to residents and visitors and it continues to grow. In 2014, the site engaged over 200,000 unique users, and had over 625,000 page views. Today, PeakRadar.com is now home to over 2,500 event listings every year, as well as over 300 cultural organization listings and more than 350 artist profiles. Listing your community event, cultural organization, or artist profile is free and easy, and can be done directly from the PeakRadar.com website. If you need assistance using the site, please contact Brittney McDonald-Lantzer, or call her on our help-line at 719-634-5155.

PeakRadar.com also partners with the Colorado Springs Convention and Visitor’s Bureau and the Colorado Springs Downtown Partnership to provide event information for their online calendars. This widget capability greatly expands Peak Radar’s reach, and has the potential to be incorporated into any website. Please contact Angela Seals to request pricing and additional information about incorporating our widget into your website. Recently established partnerships with other community organizations like the Colorado Springs Sports Corporation and the Pikes Peak Library District also help to drive new audiences to the website, and to provide exciting opportunities for collaboration and cross-promotion.

Paid display advertising on PeakRadar.com is also powerful way of getting your message in front of thousands of our region’s culturally-engaged residents and visitors each week. To request more detailed information about paid advertising, please contact Angela Seals.

Finally, Peak Radar’s audience development program also includes a weekly Peak Radar Picks e-blasts, which highlights eight to ten upcoming community events each week on Wednesday. Please click here if you’d like to start receiving the Peak Radar Picks email every week. We also have a great Guest Curator program that enables a different community member to help make selections for our weekly e-blast. Anyone is welcome to be a Guest Curator, and you are more than welcome to promote your own events. To find out more about being a Guest Curator for a future Peak Radar Picks email, please contact Brittney McDonald-Lantzer.
