No Matter Your “Beet”…

The Creative Beet is a registered 501(c)(3) organization. We celebrate and organize creative arts in Scottsbluff, Nebraska and the surrounding Nebraska Panhandle communities.

Off the “beet’n” path, Scottsbluff is a unique blend of cultures and geography, where adventurous people have been exploring and settling for hundreds of years! The North Platte Valley is a melting pot of German-Russians, Mexicans, Japanese, Greeks, and others who came to work in the sugar beet industry. It is also home to the Lakota Sioux.

With our amazing diversity, we are quickly becoming a must see destination for a unique blend of creative artists in Western Nebraska.

Our Mission

Encouraging expression through the invitation of the full diversity of cultural and artistic gifts in the area- including music, food, and visual & performing arts.

Growing talent through supporting and hosting opportunities for art exploration, building relationships, and showcasing work.

Engaging youth to create a space where they have freedom and encouragement to explore creative opportunities.

Working together on shared goals through open and active communication among partners and actively seeking out and staying open to new people and ideas.

Creation of fun events and engaging activities that bring the community together and attract visitors to the district.

Making the beauty of our community visible in our streetscapes and buildings through public art, infrastructure improvements, landscaping, and historic preservation.

Our Vision

The Scottsbluff Creative District, The Creative Beet, will be a hub of creative energy in the region, where the talent and soul of the community are showcased in an attractive, colorful, quirky, fun, and memorable place to be. The vibrant atmosphere will draw diverse visitors and residents alike, supporting economic prosperity and community togetherness into the future.
