COVID-19 Policy

WELCOME

The Vilar Performing Arts Center is pleased to bring a complete programming schedule to our beautiful venue. As permitted by current State of Colorado and Eagle County guidelines, the Vilar Performing Arts Center is currently operating at full capacity.  It’s important for us to meet or exceed the guidelines set forth by local, regional, state and federal agencies for operating in a COVID-19 environment and therefore we want to inform you of some important changes you’ll notice upon attending a performance at the VPAC.

PROOF OF VACCINATION POLICY:

As of August 20, 2021, the Vilar Performing Arts Center implemented revised venue health and safety proof of vaccination policies for attendees, patrons, volunteers, and employees at all future performances. Proof of Full Vaccination can be a hard copy or digital picture of your vaccination card, myColorado app digital COVID-19 vaccine record or State Authorized Immunization Records. We may revise our policy in the future based on data specific to COVID disease trends in our County. We will update ticket holders if any changes are made to our COVID safety policies.  We thank you for your patronage, for your understanding, and for your cooperation.
