Silverthorne is a vibrant and creative cultural hub where world-class actors and musicians mingle with local artisans and creative professionals.

At the center of this dynamic community is the Silverthorne Performing Arts Center, a 16,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility that opened in 2017. Home to the renowned Lake Dillon Theatre Company, the center hosts a diverse roster of live entertainment, public art exhibits and community events throughout the year.

Every year, myriad performances and events take the stage at the Performing Arts Center and surrounding cultural complex, which includes the town Pavilion. Silverthorne also maintains a robust community events calendar of social gatherings at local parks, the Recreation Center and businesses around town.  

Launched in 2018, Silverthorne’s First Friday series on the first Friday of each month showcases the community’s talented makers and performers. Events include hosted evenings with artists, chefs, brewers, musicians and more. The whole community is welcome to participate.

Throughout the year, a mix of events ranging from comedy shows to musical performances, country western dances and more can be enjoyed at the Pavilion, a beautiful event space on the banks of the Blue River. In the winter, the Pavilion hosts the annual Holiday Bazaar, which highlights the talents of local artisans who offer one-of-a-kind gifts for purchase.

The Town also works with various artists, local to Summit County or the state of Colorado, for public art displays across the town. View the Strategic Arts Location Plan for more information.
