Nestled in the heart of this historic mining town, the Riverwalk Center, a multifaceted, award-winning performing arts facility is the focal point for summer activities. The Riverwalk Center is the western most anchor of the Breckenridge Arts District, managed by the Breckenridge Creative Arts.
The Riverwalk Center was part of the Blue River Restoration Project embarked on by the Town of Breckenridge in 1992. The walkway, the Riverwalk Center and its native landscape offer a beautiful setting for picnics, special events or simply relaxing along the banks of the river.
Raising the Roof - the Riverwalk Center Transformation:
For it's first 15 years, the 770-seat Riverwalk Center was a seasonal amphitheater covered by a tent and hosted thousands of concerts and events. In 2006 it was determined that the existing tent needed to be replaced due to normal "wear and tear". In a public/private collaborative partnership, over $1,000,000 was raised in private funds to 'raise the roof' and significantly enhance the cultural offerings. The Town of Breckenridge funded the remaining cost of the project, over $4million.
