No shopping center has the kind of outdoor space for holiday fun that The Orchard Town Center in Broomfield has, which is why it’s going big this year. With one of the most ideal outside spaces for safe events, the Center’s living windows are among the most unique activities happening this holiday. The Orchard’s windows come to life with whimsical performances from professional ballerinas en pointe, pet and puppy adoption to carolers on Saturdays and Sundays.
There will be select live music on the stage, as well at carriage rides, FREE hot cocoa, FREE gift wrapping and a giving tree. Here’s a look at what’s planned.
Listen and enjoy live holiday music on The Orchard’s stage on select days from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The festive music includes jazz, contemporary and gospel artists adding a bit of cheer to the town center.
Masks are required for the duration of the performance. You and your group will be required to space yourself at least six feet from other groups. No more than 50 people will be allowed to sit in the event area at one time. Bring your own chairs and seating availability will be on a first-come-first-serve basis. Performances include:
Thursday, December 3 — Peter Yellen
Sunday, December 6 — Tyree Morris
Sunday, December 13 — Jenny Shawhan
Sunday, December 20 — Peter Yellen
December 5, 6, 12, 13, 19 & 20, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
