OVG Facilities Adds Las Colonias Amphitheater To Grand Junction Roster
Three Diverse Venue Options Now Under OVG Facilities
Grand Junction, CO. (May 18, 2017) – OVG Facilities, venue managers of the Avalon Theatre and Two Rivers Convention Center, announced today their agreement with the City of Grand Junction has been extended to book live, ticketed entertainment for the new built Las Colonias Amphitheater, scheduled to open in July. The Las Colonias Amphitheater sits on a beautiful backdrop of picturesque southern Colorado with a 40’x 60’ stage, large side wings and a capacity of 5,000.
The City contracted with OVG Facilities in January to take over management of the City’s two entertainment/conference assets in an effort to increase operational efficiencies and streamline costs. Pinnacle is providing full management and operational services of Two Rivers Convention Center and the historic Avalon Theatre.
The component of booking live, ticketed events at the Las Colonias Amphitheater has been added to the current three-year management agreement with OVG Facilities. The responsibility of filling the event calendar will be shared with the Grand Junction Parks and Recreation Department as they will focus on local community-based events.
“It’s an honor the City of Grand Junction has extended our partnership to include the Las Colonias Amphitheater,” said OVG Facilities, Maria Rainsdon, General Manager of Two Rivers Convention Center and the Avalon Theatre. “Being able to present three diverse venue possibilities to tours and promoters will open the door to many more entertainment options.”
Grand Junction City Manager Greg Caton adds, “We have such an opportunity before us here to benefit from the deep experience and industry connection that Pinnacle brings to this relationship. They are doing an outstanding job managing Two Rivers and the Avalon, so it was a natural decision for us to extend the agreement to the Amphitheater as well. We look forward to seeing even more great things happen down at Las Colonias.”
The partnership extension brings a wider scope of potential events to the community. It allows Pinnacle to focus their efforts on national touring events and the Parks and Recreation Department to focus on first-rate community entertainment.
