The Dickens Opera House, a venue located in Longmont, Colorado, harbors a rich history and legacy from its beginnings in 1881. William Henry Dickens, who originally built the opera house, obtained the land through his father who was given the land by Ulysses S. Grant. Not only does this land have ties to President Grant, but also to the author Charles Dickens, who was related to William Henry Dickens. While it was renovated a few years ago, the historic roots of this landmark were carefully preserved so that its history could continue to be told and celebrated. Couples now can plan their engagement party, rehearsal dinner, and ceremony is this historic site, weaving their own unique tale within its walls.

Facility and Capacity
While this is a historic space, couples and guests will be surrounded by many modern conveniences throughout the facility. Some of the additions include state-of-the-art sound equipment, custom LED uplighting and a full built-in bar. On their wedding day, both brides and grooms can prepare in the separate changing suites on the property. For your ceremony and reception, you have the option of hosting your wedding in the Dickens Opera House. There are also private rooms throughout the Tavern that you can choose from, like the Presidents Room, Tin Room, or Wine Vault. With these indoor space options, you are welcome to invite up to 300 of your friends and family to join you as you celebrate your wedding day.

    Rodrigues Wedding 2022

    I had the most beautiful wedding day at Dickens!

    Our guest count was on the higher end and The team went above and beyond! We were even able to coordinate a surprise celebrity appearance! How lucky is that!

    I feel like Noella and Tia treated us like it was their personal wedding day. Every interaction with them felt like their heart was in it 110%. They made my stress absolutely disappear! My husband and I were the last ones out of the building. We were having an absolute blast. Thank you all!

    Most beautiful Historic Venue

    We booked our daughters wedding with The Dickens Opera House. The staff is incredible. Noella is very professional, attentive and accommodating. Our guests had nothing but praise for the friendly staff and the lovely atmosphere of the venue. Anthony is an incredible chef, the food was superb! I highly recommend anyone to trust them with their special event. My daughter says her wedding at The Dickens Opera House/Dickens Prime was everything she dreamed of. I can鈥檛 thank you enough Anthony and Noella!
