Get ready for the ultimate playdate - 65 million years in the making - as Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo Live guides your family on a breathtaking tour through pre-historic Australia.  You’ll observe, meet and interact with an eye-popping collection of amazingly life-like dinosaurs and other creatures presented in a theatrical performance that will thrill and entertain kids while stimulating their imaginations in ways that will forever connect them to their world.  Brought to life by a team of skilled performers and puppeteers, and designed with the help of professional paleontologists, Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo Live’s puppets are so extraordinarily realistic you may feel the urge to run and hide - but don’t!  Because you won’t want to miss a minute of this fun, unique, entertaining and educational live show created by Erth Visual & Physical of Sydney, Australia.  While it may indeed have been 65 million years in the making, we think you’ll agree, it’s well worth the wait.

In partnership with Developmental Pathways and Autism Society of Colorado, Swallow Hill Music is proud to announce its first sensory friendly concert, with Stef Briggs & Paul Trunko on Sunday, November 6 at noon. *Doors open at 11:30am.

The concert in Daniels Hall aims to create a welcoming space for concertgoers and their families to enjoy live music in safe and comfortable surroundings. 

Sensory friendly concerts are specifically designed for individuals with sensory sensitivities and developmental disabilities, including those diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. We turn the lights up and the sound down so individuals and their families can walk around, dance, and sing along in a fun, judgement free environment. 

Sensory Friendly events are designed to be an inclusive and welcoming experience for individuals impacted by intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (I/DD) and their family and friends.

Events like this, while geared toward some of the unique needs of individuals with I/DD, will make our cultural events and experiences more welcoming for all. We welcome individuals of all ages and abilities at this performance.
