Vail Oktoberfest – canceled
- Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater – The Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater will host a shortened season in 2020, welcoming small events of under 250 people only during the “black diamond” phase of Eagle County’s Public Health Order. The venue is also exploring the idea of hosting “Movie Night at The Amp” by playing classic movies and documentaries on its big screen, and is working to expand partnerships with local businesses to utilize the venue in creative ways for yoga, fitness, art and music classes throughout the summer. The venue will also be available to rent for events that are able to fit within public health guidelines.
- Hot Summer Nights – Hot Summer Nights performance dates and artists are yet to be determined, and Boyd said that he and the staff of the Ford Amphitheater are building a social distancing plan that would stay in keeping with public health guidance.
- GoPro Mountain Games – GoPro Mountain Games will not occur in 2020. The organization is pursuing several avenues to keep the spirit of the GoPro Mountain Games alive throughout the summer and is already planning for next year’s event, scheduled for June 10-13, 2021.
- Vail Dance Festival – The Vail Dance Festival will cancel all in-person performances for the 2020 season, a decision made in the interest of the safety and well-being of artists, staff and audiences due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Festival plans to present a digital festival of unique performances from past seasons during the intended time of the 2020 Festival, and preparations are underway for the return of live performances starting with opening night on July 30, 2021.
- ShowDown Town – The Vail Valley Foundation is also exploring a modified version of the ShowDown Town free summer concerts in Eagle. The organization hopes that Eagle County can achieve the Black Diamond phase of the public health order by early July when the first concert is currently planned. Organizers would then limit the number of live attendees and enact guidelines to meet all public health orders in the Eagle Town Park venue. Plans for an event of this type will be determined by the success of the Public Health Order.
- Vilar Performing Arts Center – The Vilar Performing Arts Center will be postponing or canceling all headliner artists between now and the end of August but is evaluating opportunities for hosting smaller events in light of Eagle County Health’s latest Public Health Order. The venue recently held a successful new virtual music series dubbed the “Ghost Light Sessions” with local bands playing to an empty theater. The Ghost Light Sessions will continue, as will the theater’s role in the local community and in the region, even if these efforts remain virtual in the coming weeks and months.
