Civic Center Celebration

Sep 14, 2019


Please join the Civic Center Conservancy OUTDOORS in beautiful Civic Center Park to celebrate the centennial of the Greek Theatre as we honor Dennis Humphries and the Boettcher Foundation, this year's recipients of the Elaine Asarch Award.

The nonprofit Civic Center Conservancy will celebrate the centennial year of the Greek Theatre and Voorhies Memorial along with our organizational accomplishments as we honor two very special supporters of the Conservancy, Dennis Humphries and the Boettcher Foundation, with the 2019 Elaine Asarch Award. For the first time in the Conservancy's 15-year history, this annual event will take place outdoors in Civic Center Park.
Cocktails within the Greek Theatre, dinner, entertainment by members of the Colorado Symphony Orchestra and a post-dinner party will be included with a ticket. Information on tables, tickets and sponsorships is available to download on the left side of this page. Please contact with any questions or to request that a printed invitation be mailed to you.

For the past 15 years, the Civic Center Conservancy has worked to realize the vision Denver's leaders had for Civic Center Park a century ago - as a thriving urban oasis that would inspire civic pride, economic prosperity and cultural vitality. Overcoming decades of challenges that left the park in a troubling state, the Conservancy has successfully advocated for infrastructure improvements, expanded safety & maintenance operations, new public programs and events that are breathing new life into this nearly 100-year old National Historic Landmark, but we need your support to ensure it thrives for centuries to come!

Organized by Conservancy staff and the Centennial Celebration Committee, proceeds from the Civic Center Park Celebration support the Conservancy's free community programming aimed at revitalizing Civic Center Park - elevating and sustaining this National Historic Landmark as a vibrant and iconic cultural hub. Civic Center Conservancy programs include Civic Center EATS, Civic Center MOVES, Independence Eve, Art in the Park and a range of notable special events and concerts each year.
