UPDATE AS OF NOVEMBER 5, 2020
Summit County has issued an amended Public Health Order restricting group gatherings as of 5:00 p.m. on Friday, November 6, 2020, to limit the spread and health impacts of COVID-19.
For this reason, BreckCreate has cancelled all indoor classes and open studio hours starting on Saturday, November 7, 2020. Initially, we will cancel and refund registrations for classes scheduled to take place between November 7, 2020 and November 20, 2020. We will monitor the Summit County public health order weekly and extend cancellations and refunds as necessary.
Registration for future classes will not become available again until we can confirm that classes may resume. We hope to make classes and open studio hours available again soon once the Summit County Health Department announces that it is safe to do so. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Breckenridge Creative Arts and Breckenridge Music Respond To COVID‐19
Based on recommendations from Summit County Public Health, Summit County and the Town of Breckenridge, all public events and performances in the Riverwalk Center, Breckenridge Theater, Speakeasy Theater, Arts District Campus, and Old Masonic Hall will be canceled or postponed through May 30th, at which time we will review local and state safety guidance.
“The difficult decision to remain closed for the time being will help to ensure the health and wellbeing of our audiences, artists, staff, and volunteers. Breckenridge Creative Arts is committed to the safe activation of our Town and community,” said Breckenridge Creative Arts (BCA) President + CEO Matt Neufeld.
With this priority foremost in mind, BCA has postponed the WAVE: Light + Water + Sound Festival to 2021 and canceled the Breckenridge Music 2020 Summer Season. Breckenridge Music and BCA merged in January 2020. We encourage patrons to visit either breckcreate.org or breckmusic.org for more information and updates. Other events hosted at the Riverwalk Center have also been canceled or postponed until a safe reopening can be determined. The Riverwalk Center Ticket Office will be in touch with anyone who has already purchased a ticket to notify them of a refund or rescheduled event or workshop.
During the next phase of the recovery, we encourage you to continue to connect with the arts in safe ways. BreckCreate Classes and workshops on the Arts District Campus are currently suspended. If you need a dose of art or creative inspiration, head to our Facebook, Instagram, or YouTube channels for our latest offering – BreckCreate | Connect – our virtual art studio. Through these channels, local artists are sharing everything from ceramics demos, DIY selfcare recipes, family-friendly crafts, and upcycled home art projects. For virtual gallery tours, musical offerings, writing workshops, and other online arts, watch for our Staff Picks.
We are committed to supporting our Town and our community during this difficult time. We do not take this suspension of activities lightly, knowing that the communal connections made at public art events are some of the strongest tools against the fears and anxieties of this moment.
In these unprecedented times, our thoughts are with everyone personally impacted by the spread of COVID-19. We are grateful for the medical staff and essential workers on the frontlines helping to keep us safe, fed, and functioning.
