Please leave plenty of time for downtown traffic, parking, security, and getting to your seats before the performance begins.
Know Before You Go!
Before you head out for the performance, take note of the following information including directions, parking information, and ticket access.
Masks and Proof of Vaccination No Longer Required
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have monitored regional COVID-19 data and followed the guidance of the CDC and our partners at UCHealth, as well as public health and government officials, to implement mitigation protocols that provide a safe and comfortable environment for the enjoyment of live, symphonic music.
As the number of Covid-19 cases continues to decline in the region, we have adjusted our protocols accordingly. Beginning March 14, patrons will no longer be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative Covid-19 test to attend our performances, and the wearing of masks in Boettcher Concert Hall will be optional.
Boettcher Concert Hall is at the southwest end of the Denver Performing Arts Complex located at 14th & Curtis Streets in downtown Denver. Please arrive early to ensure ease of parking and an on-time arrival. With numerous other events happening at the Performing Arts Complex all the time, parking fills up quickly.
Plan ahead to ensure a stress-free concert experience. Late arrivals will be seated during the first available break.
To provide for the safety of all guests and employees at Boettcher Concert Hall and the entire Denver Performing Arts Complex, Denver Arts & Venues provides enhanced security measures at Boettcher Concert Hall. These security measures include Evolv contactless security screening and may include bag checks.
We encourage you to arrive up to an hour early, prior to the start of your event. This will alleviate congestion in all walk ways and entrances and will allow for proper screening. To review a full list of permitted and prohibited items, please visit artscomplex.com.
About Touchless Screening
Inside Boettcher Concert Hall, Buell Theatre and Ellie Caulkins Opera House, we have a touchless screening system that ensures safer, more accurate threat detection at a seamless pace to eliminate long entry lines. The technology identifies unknown metal objects on a separate digital monitor and notifies staff when secondary screening is necessary. If the device sounds an alert, you may be asked by staff to participate in additional screening before proceeding. Please note, things like a metal clasp or chain on a purse, or an eyeglass case can sometimes trigger the alert, so we appreciate your patience and understanding if you asked to participate in further screening. For additional information, please contact ArtsComplexPatronServices@denvergov.org.
The Colorado Symphony Box Office is in the lobby of Boettcher Concert Hall, located at the southwest end of the Denver Performing Arts Complex. Allow plenty of time for ticket pick-up and parking.

Box Office hours are Mon-Fri: 11:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m., Sat: 12:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m., and Sunday: 12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. (only when a performance is scheduled and only in person).
