This year's Vertical Dance at Vedauwoo concert is set for Saturday, August 24 at 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. and Sunday, August 25 at 11:00 a.m.
The concert will also feature music by Lights Along the Shore, an ensemble composed of Rod Garnett, Lisa Rickard, Blake McGee, and Steve Barnhart.
Getting to the “Vertical Dance at Vedauwoo” performances will take additional time, so audience members are advised to leave Laramie at least 70 minutes before the performance they are scheduled to see. The earlier you arrive, the better. In addition, we encourage patrons to carpool to the venue when at all possible, and to please leave pets at home, unless you have purchased a ticket for them.
Please note that limited busing from Laramie will be available for the August 24, 10:00 a.m. performance only for an additional fee. The bus will leave from the Premier Bone and Joint parking lot at 8:35 a.m. on the morning of the performance. Bus capacity is limited and is offered on a first come, first served basis. Bus passes are $3.00 per person and must be purchased from the Performing Arts box office, along with tickets for the 10:00 a.m. performance. Patrons are advised to procure tickets and bus passes by calling 307-766-6666 or by visiting the Fine Arts Box Office weekdays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The Vedauwoo recreation area is 16 miles east of Laramie on I-80. After taking the Vedauwoo exit, patrons will be directed by parking attendants to park their cars in designated areas. Buses onsite will transport patrons from the designated parking area to a drop-off point in the Box Canyon parking lot, from which there is a 10-minute walk up a gravel path to the performance area. If you opt to forgo busing and park inside the recreation area, please note that you will need to pay the Forest Service day pass fee and that parking may be limited.
The last bus from the parking area will depart 15 minutes prior to the performance. The trail up to the performance area is a gradual incline and there are loose rocks and low tree limbs along the way. Ushers will be on the trail to help patrons find the seating area.
The seating area is first-come, first-served, with seating mainly on the ground. The performance lasts approximately an hour in an area with little or no shade, and is at about 8600’ ft above sea-level. Bright sun and hot temperatures are likely to be balanced with occasional showers. Patrons are advised to plan accordingly. Sunscreen, water, and a blanket to sit on are recommended.
Vedauwoo is a natural recreation area and can be challenging terrain. Minimal ADA accommodations are available, and patrons should contact the box office as soon as possible for further information. The vertical dance performances are produced in cooperation with the US Forest Service.
