The Dairy Arts Center is equipped to handle a variety of events from live performances to buffet dinners. Our professional staff will assist you every step of the way to make your event a success. To begin, follow the steps below:
PLEASE NOTE: At this time, the Dairy Arts Center requires that all renting organizations pay a $175 Box Office and Ticketing fee for any event open to the public.
This fee covers both the ticket build and management as well as administrative oversight of patron COVID-19 screening and contact tracing records.*
This fee does not apply to private events of two or less households or closed productions.
*Under the BOCO 5 Star Program, the Dairy Arts Center is required to take reservations for all patrons. In order to do this, we must consider all events to be “ticketed” (even if free) and collect at least one contact per party.
This allows the Dairy Arts Center to maintain correct capacities and social distancing under the current Boulder County Public Health order, and to keep records in place for contact tracing purposes.
Additionally, this program requires the Dairy Arts Center to screen all patrons for COVID symptoms and exposure. For each event, a Dairy Arts Center staff (and additional volunteers if necessary) will screen each patron, including a touchless thermometer temperature reading, and record any necessary information before admitting that patron.
