Concert Season

The TCB plays four major concerts (Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer/Fourth of July) a year with the season starting in September (usually the second Thursday in Sept) and ending in July.

Additionally, several minor (but still just as important) concerts are spread throughout the concert season including: Thornton Winterfest, Thornton Twist and Shout Summer Concert Series, Highlands Ranch Band Festival, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) Relief Walk, Balfour Sr. Assisted Living Winter Holiday, “Pop-up” concerts, and assorted summer concerts.
