Health and Safety

Health and Safety at the Center


As Arvada Center staff continue to monitor the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), we are faced with many difficult decisions.  Following recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and with the health and safety of our patrons and staff as our priority, we have decided to take the following steps.

Thank you to our sponsor SCL Health/Lutheran Medical Center. Visit their website for resources on health, safety and risk assessment.

Arvada Center Now Open

  • The Arvada Center facility is now open to public visitors to experience our gallery exhibition and educational classes.   
  • All visitors to the Center are required to wear a face mask when inside our facility.
  • Additionally, all visitors will be asked to do a temperature check before entering our facility. This fulfills requirements for buildings owned or operated by the City of Arvada. A temperature check kiosk is set up in our main lobby.


  • The Arvada Center Box Office will assist patrons virtually and by phone Monday through Friday between the hours of 9 am and 5 pm and Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm.  If you have a question for box office staff, please send an email to or call 720-898-7200
  • If you would like to submit a request to donate your purchased tickets, transfer the cost of your tickets to a gift certificate, or receive a refund, please log into your Arvada Center account here, or use this online request form.
  • Due to the volume of patrons we are assisting, we ask for your patience allow Box Office staff up to two weeks to process any online requests.  Thank you for your understanding during this difficult period. 

Classes and Camps


  • We are moving our children’s summer camps from being held in person at the Arvada Center, to being offered virtually through Zoom. This difficult decision was made with the highest priority for the health and safety of all Arvada Center staff, instructors, families and campers.
  • By delivering the camp through a virtual format, we can meet every camper right where they are and provide an engaging experience that allows your child to learn new skills, discover new interests and most importantly, have fun.
  • If you already had a student enrolled in a camp, education staff members will reach out to you by email with the specifics on how this decision will affect your child’s specific camp.

See Summer Camps


  • Select education classes are now being offered in person this summer, following state guidelines for safety. Mask wear, social distancing guidelines and temperature checks are required for students enrolled in these classes.
  • Virtual classes are still available this summer.

The Arvada Center Galleries hold the health and safety of our visitors, staff, and artists as the highest priority. To allow for recommended distancing and to monitor the number of people in our galleries, we are implementing a new reservation system for our summer exhibition Pink Progression: Collaborations.

All visitors are encouraged to reserve a free ticket for a one-hour time slot before you come to the Arvada Center. Be sure to wear a mask or cloth face covering before you enter. As you enter the building, you will use a self-service kiosk to check your temperature.

Pink Progression: Collaborations opens July 2.

Performance Cancellations


  • All remaining theatre performances and concerts through May 31 have been cancelled, effective March 16, 2020. 


  • Until further notice, all gallery spaces are closed to the public. 


If you purchased tickets to a performance or concert that was cancelled, you should have received direct communication regarding your ticket options. If you have questions, please visit the webpage below to see frequently asked questions about exchanges and refunds. You can also contact our Box Office with questions. 

Ticketing FAQ Page

As the Arvada Center is a non-profit institution relying on both ticket sales and contributed revenue, we ask you to consider donating the cost of your ticket.  While cancelling performances is necessary for the health of all of our patrons, staff, artists, and volunteers, it will be a loss for the institution, making donations even more important.  If you choose to donate your ticket as a tax-deductible donation you will help sustain our revenue during this time, allowing us to inspire and impact people through the arts and humanities well into the future.
