With multiple government restrictions and recommendations in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19 — including a statewide suspension of sit-down services in restaurants and bars and a recommendation to cancel events of 50 people or more — many Arvada events, classes, programs and services will no longer run as scheduled:
City of Arvada
Declaring a State of Emergency, the city announced it plans to cancel all non-essential events with crowds of more than 250 people and many non-essential events with crowds of fewer than 250 people, through May 4.
The Arvada Kite Festival on April 5 has been canceled.
The city has suspended passport services, neighborhood meetings at city facilities and approval of permits for special events to take place before April 30.
Government meetings, such as city council and planning commission meetings, will not continue in their usual capacity. The March 16 city council meeting and March 17 planning commission meeting were canceled, with the city stating that the meetings’ agenda items will be rescheduled for a later date.
March 23, a city council workshop and short meeting to consider consent agenda items will be held and broadcast to the public, but will be limited to city staff and councilmembers.
The city plans to create an online forum for upcoming council meetings, said city communications manager Ben Irwin.
“We’re trying to do the maximum to use technology to give people different ways to access the conversation and provide public comment,” he said. “We’re looking at early April to pilot a solution.”
Apex Park and Recreation District
Through April 5, all Apex facilities, including outdoor fields, the Indian Tree Golf Club, pools and pickleball courts are closed. Apex programs and classes are all canceled.
Arvada Chamber of Commerce
With plans to reschedule or provide digital alternatives, the Arvada Chamber has canceled all March and April events. Visit arvadachamber.org for information on specific events.

The following Community Table have been suspended until further notice: the client choice food pantry; GED tutoring; health clinic; mobile dental; tax preparation services; Living Well Showers; Severe Weather Shelter Network; and Feeding the Future.
