Ridge Street Arts Square

At first glance, the Ridge Street Arts Square may appear to be little more than a parking lot—albeit a well-appointed parking lot paved with decorative bricks that offers prime parking in the heart of town. For special events, however, the Ridge Street Arts Square transforms into a public venue for creative experiences from festivals to concerts and movie screenings. An adjacent lawn and stone seating area make for a comfy outdoor space in the summer months. Like everything else in the Breckenridge Arts District, the square is designed to be versatile to accommodate a range of uses from parking to on-campus programming. In addition, the location affords some of the best views of the Tenmile Range in town, framing the mountains themselves as works of art.
