Description:

A stately, 750-seat performance venue on the banks of the Blue River in downtown Breckenridge, the Riverwalk Center hosts the summer repertoires of the Breckenridge Music Festival Orchestra and National Repertory Orchestra, in addition to visiting bands, musicians, and multimedia events. The flexible venue is heated for indoor concerts, and its glass doors open onto an expansive green lawn for summer events. The original Riverwalk Center was a seasonal amphitheater covered by a fabric tent, constructed as part of the Town’s Blue River Reclamation Project in 1992. In 2006, with more than $1 million in support from individuals, companies, and foundations, the Town replaced the tent with today’s permanent structure. Facility and equipment upgrades, completed from 2014-2016, updated the venue while enhancing film and multimedia offerings.
