About Dickens Opera House

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.

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.

    Always willing to help and had plentiful experience to help us through our special day.

    During our time of working with the Dickens they were always willing to help out and all of the employees that were there helped us with every step. Their demeanor was always kind and ready to help. I never felt pressured to do something that I did not want to. Their staff was always willing to listen when we had questions or clarifications. Exceptional experience!

    We picked the Dickens Opera House because if it's unique setting and it was the party of the year! We could not have had better quality of food, to serve 150 guests is difficult and it was 5 star. The entire staff was very friendly and professional, especially Shawn the owner and Amelia the wedding coordinator. The lighting package and music program we picked was outstanding and our photographer did an outstanding job. The reverend we used was also outstanding. You can check with Amelia and she can let you know our vendors. If we had do do it over again we'd do it at the Dickens. We highly recommend everyone we used. Thank you again to the Dickens Staff!!
