DILLON, COLO. – Dillon Town Council gave preliminary approval to move forward with construction
level drawings of the Dillon Amphitheatre Master Plan and secure financing for the improvements

The Dillon Amphitheatre is a 25-year-old facility that hosts numerous, diverse, civic events each summer
Including; free Friday and Saturday concerts, dance nights, movie nights, Naturalization ceremonies and
other community services.
“The investment in the Amphitheatre is part of a long term plan to invest in public amenities in order
to support and encourage redevelopment opportunities in the Town Center,’ said Mayor Kevin Burns.
“As part of the 2015 annual retreat, we (council) looked at our goal of driving economic redevelopment and
determined that the best action we can take currently is to invest in aging public amenities that have a
proven track record of providing enjoyment for residents and guests and that also contribute to the
success and sustainability of our town by driving awareness, foot traffic and spending in Dillon.”
Facility improvements will include:
- Increased and improved restroom facilities
- Improved Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility
- Streamlined backstage loading and unloading capabilities
- Improved grade of grass seating area
