Thornton adds a new, more intimate performance series this summer with the introduction of Acoustic Tuesdays. Six performances presented by regional artists celebrate various cultures and holidays with live music, dance and storytelling at Lu Murray Park (next to the Thornton Arts and Culture Center) from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. Admission is FREE.
If you aren’t comfortable attending in person or can’t get tickets, Acoustic Tuesdays will also be live streamed. You can watch here.
Safety-spaced seating begins at 6 p.m. and is first come, first served for pre-registered ticket holders. Please bring a copy of your ticket or have it ready to display on your phone when checking in at the park to confirm your space.
Bring your own blanket or chair, and find an available square which holds two people maximum. If your group is larger than two people, you will not be able to sit in the same square and must pre-register for additional spaces at two people each.
Unregistered guests will be required to register when they arrive at the event. Seating is not guaranteed for unregistered guests.
Adjacent parking spaces will be available as marked on a first come, first serve basis to listen to the concert from your car. Children under 12 must attend the concert with an adult regardless of seating location.
All information is subject to change as is the maximum capacity allowed at these events based on current guidance from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment on the day of the concert.
