Amphitheatre Policies

Everyone Should Have a Ticket

In the reserved covered seating section of the amphitheatre, all patrons must have a ticket. In the lawn seating section, children age 2 and under do not need a ticket. 

Please be advised that we no longer reprint concert tickets.

All Events Held Rain or Shine

Summer concerts will still be held in the amphitheatre. All events are held rain or shine and because of this we cannot give refunds, credits, or exchanges for summer events.

Umbrellas are welcome. Please do not bring over-sized beach or golf umbrellas as a courtesy to other concert patrons. 

Smoking and Vapor Products

The Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities is a non-smoking facility. This includes cigarettes, e-cigarettes, vaporizers, pipes, and any other smoking or "vaping" device. 

Authorized Ticket Sales

The Arvada Center Box Office, its phone center and Web site, are the only authorized outlets for tickets to performances presented by the Arvada Center. Tickets purchased from any other sources, such as brokers or secondary market web sites, are purchased at your own risk. We urge patrons to purchase tickets only from the Arvada Center. By purchasing from the official ticket provider, you are assured that the ticket you receive is valid and being sold to you at face value.

When you buy from someone other than the Arvada Center:

• We cannot guarantee that your tickets are genuine

• We cannot replace lost or stolen tickets
• We cannot contact you with information on production and/or performance cancellations, time changes or other useful information
