Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater to Open for Events

The Vail Valley Foundation is set to open the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater this July and have announced updates on summer arts, athletics, and education programming in the Vail Valley. We are so excited to shout out their news.

The Vail Valley Foundation today announced plans for a July 11 opening of the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater. Capacity will be limited according to public health order guidelines, and guests will be asked to follow new venue protocols:

The VVF has told us that Summer has been good to the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater in one particular way: its pavilion, grounds and gardens are looking more beautiful than ever.

“We’ve had ample time to paint, plant, and fine-tune everything to bring this venue into pristine condition,” said Tom Boyd, Director of the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater for the Vail Valley Foundation. “Now it’s time to open the gates and welcome our neighbors and friends back into this incredible place.”

The Vail Valley Foundation will open the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater July 11 with the first installment of a new Saturday evening Movie Night at The Amp cinema series, which will show movies on the venue’s 23×9-foot, very bright, video screen, with accompanying audio through the venue’s extensive speaker system.

“The movies will be crystal clear, even in the daytime,” Boyd said.

Movie nights on The Amp’s lawn begin Saturday, July 11, with gates opening at 5:30 p.m. and showtimes at 6:30 p.m., and are expected to continue to late August. The first shows will be “Trolls World Tour” July 11, “Remember the Titans” July 18, and Teton Gravity Research’s new mountain bike film “Accomplice” July 25.

Tickets go on sale at 11 a.m. today at for “Trolls World Tour” and “Remember the Titans”. Capacity in the 2,600-seat venue currently will be limited to 175 for Movie Nights, lawn only. Future Movie Nights at The Amp tickets will go onsale, online, 10 days in advance of the show at 11 a.m.
