Located approximately 50 miles northeast of Denver, at the confluence of the South Platte and Cache la Poudre rivers, Greeley was primarily an agricultural development, with some of the first successful irrigated farmland. Agri-business still provides a solid economic basis, with Weld County consistently ranking in the top 10 agricultural producing counties in the nation.
Greeley is also home to the University of Northern Colorado, founded in 1889 as the State Normal School , but is also recognized today for its quality business, performing arts and nursing programs. The university draws an array of guest artists and speakers who brighten the cultural landscape. Each spring, one of the nation’s largest jazz festivals has the whole town tapping its toes.
