About Us

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.

Services Offered
The Dickens Opera House can provide couples with wedding planning services. At the venue, there is a wedding and event coordinator who is ready to help with planning all aspects of your special day. There is also plenty of parking available on site for you and your guests to use on your wedding day.

The Dickens Tavern can also provide delicious menus for couples. The owner, who has 25 years of culinary experience, has the specialty of blending comfort foods with elegant touches. Your wedding-day meals will feature that same combination so that you and your guests are amazed with your cuisine choices. Catering items such as barware, china, flatware, glassware, and linens can be provided by the staff so you can simply relax and enjoy your once-in-a-lifetime day.

  • Our wedding reception was amazing! The food was so great, the service was impeccable, and Amelia did everything possible to make my day easy and memorable. They did all the set up and tear down, made sure everything was perfect, and even went the extra mile and put more food out later in the night for us. I would highly recommend Dickens Opera House for any event.
