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.

Facility Closure

  • The Arvada Center facility is now closed to the public until further notice. We will contact patrons at such time when we decide to reopen our doors.


  • The Arvada Center Box Office will assist patrons virtually Monday through Friday between the hours of 9 am and 5 pm.  If you have a question for box office staff, pleas send an email to  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 use this online request form.
  • Box Office staff will be available to answer phone calls during limited hours.  If you would like to speak with a representative, please call the Box Office at 720-898-7200 between the hours of 10 am and 2 pm, Monday through Friday.
  • 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


Arvada Center June Summer Camps go Virtual!

  • We are moving our June 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.
  • Education staff members will reach out to you by email mid-May with the specifics on how this decision will affect your child’s specific camp.
  • Decisions about July children’s summer camps will be made in early June and we will update you at that time. We thank you in advance for your patience and flexibility as we navigate this challenging situation.

See Summer Camps


  • All classes and workshops scheduled to begin between March 16 and May 31 have been cancelled.  Education staff will contact each enrolled student with options for registration (including transfers to a different term, donation of class cost, transfer funds to a gift certificate or a refund).  
  • Certain classes are now being delivered virtually.  Students enrolled in classes with virtual delivery options will be contacted directly by education staff.

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 that was cancelled, you should have received direct communication regarding your ticket options.  Your options are:

If you would like to donate your tickets, receive a gift certificate in your name for the amount of your ticket purchase, or request a refund, please use this online form.  Due to volume of requests, please allow up to two weeks for Box Office staff to respond to your submission.  

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.
