Just the thought of live events, music, and theater sounds fantastic after being asked to socially distance from others for nearly a year due to the pandemic. This is why the news that Montrose is getting a new amphitheater is so exciting.

While there are still many details to come it is very exciting to hear from KKCO that this new amphitheater has actually been in the works for years, and at the last city council meeting there was a decision made on who would become the contractor for the project.

The company that got the job is Stryker and Company Construction which is based in Montrose, which is always nice to see.

The project should be started shortly, just as soon as contractors are ready to move forward. The deadline for the completion of the amphitheater is November 1, 2021.

Beyond just being in the works for years this project is a group effort. The Rotary Club of Montrose put up around $200,000, the Montrose Recreation District put $50,000 toward this project, and there are lots of other local business owners who are supportive of this new amphitheater.

The location of this new amphitheater will be near Cerise park and this will be used for a variety of different events and hopefully bring more people to enjoy the beauty and support the businesses in Montrose.

While this new amphitheater won't be bringing in top national talent to perform it is exactly the kind of news that we need, just to hear about live events coming back soon sounds fantastic.
