This summer, The Lake Dillon Theatre Company (LDTC) will celebrate its 22nd annual Sunset at the Summit Concert Series by bringing its lineup of musical performances to Silverthorne’s Rainbow Park. The free outdoor concerts are open to the public and will take place each Saturday evening throughout the month of July. This year’s program includes performances from Ron Ivory & One on One, Wash Park, Sheryl Renee in Concert and Hot Lunch. The town of Silverthorne will host opening act entertainers and street performers who will interact with the crowd, as well as additional family-friendly activities.

“We are thrilled to welcome the Sunset at the Summit Concert Series to the heart of Silverthorne, our own Rainbow Park,” says Joanne Cook, Recreation and Culture director for the town of Silverthorne, in a statement. “Enhancing arts and culture offerings for the community is a top priority for the town of Silverthorne as we strive to build a solid foundation for a more vibrant downtown, and this concert series is a natural extension of our new partnership with the Lake Dillon Theatre Company.”

The Sunset at the Summit concerts will begin at 7 p.m. on Saturday evening in July, and will take place on a stage at the south end of the Rainbow Park field. Concert goers will enter through the north and south entrances and are encouraged to utilize on-street parking, Rainbow Park parking areas, as well as the Recreation Center parking lot. Mountain Lyon Café will be on hand serving up barbecue and snacks, while LDTC members serve up the libations to the crowd. All alcohol proceeds will go back to LDTC. The playgrounds, tennis and basketball courts will all be open and accessible for families and groups to utilize during the performances.

“Bringing the Sunset at the Summit Concert Series to Silverthorne has been a key initiative for our team,” said Rob DeVerna, concert manager for the town, in a statement. “We are pleased to be able to offer the musicians a professional outdoor venue surrounded by inspiring natural beauty, and excited to provide our residents and visitors to Silverthorne with a world-class musical experience that the whole family can enjoy.”
