Support the VPAC


Invest in the Vail Valley’s cultural treasure

The Vail Valley Foundation’s Vilar Performing Arts Center (VPAC) strives for diversity and excellence in artistic, entertainment, and educational activities in a year-round, non-profit performing arts venue. A full-time staff operates the state-of-the-art theater, delivering events that span a wide array of art forms, genres and educational initiatives.

With ticket sales covering only 25% of the theater’s $4.5 million annual budget, support for the performances and community events comes from philanthropic individuals and corporate partners.

  • Diverse programming across 100+ events annually
  • 17+ free performances for 8,000+ local youth through STARS
  • Opportunities for 800+ students and community members to attend performances through the Community Arts Access
