ABOUT THE COURTYARD
RCS began operating at 610 Clinton Street in March of 2018. One of the most-immediate projects with that acquisition was the removal of a tree that was impacting the west brick wall of the Sherbino. This historic brick work project resulted in full demolition of the backyard space behind 610 Clinton.
In 2019, the RCS initiated a low-profile fundraising campaign to design a useful outdoor programming space for small events. A few good friends stepped up to the plate, along with generous grant from our friends at Colorado Grand, and the bones of the space were completed before November, 2019.
The concept was that this space might be a fun space for smaller events such as puppet shows, solo musicians on community-wide event nights such as First Fridays, etc. We had no idea what was lurking around the corner.
At the onset of Covid in spring of 2020, we were thrilled to already have the bones of an outdoor space in place. We immediately got to work in furnishing and decorating the space and within a 1.5 month window, were able to launch what is now known as “The Courtyard at 610.”
Over the course of the summer of 2020, we activated 91 events in the space. From live music to film to book readings, poetry and more. Local and regional musicians were particularly fond of the space, not only because they were thrilled to be working, but because the space lent itself to a live music listening experience that can be rarely found in venues these days.
The Courtyard at 610 remains in operation today. Generally offering programs from mid-May through September, events can be found on our website.
2023 will open up to event rentals for The Courtyard at 610, where individuals or groups can rent the Courtyard for a private concert with friends. Details coming soon. In the meantime, feel free to reach out to us for 2023 inquiries here.
VOLUNTEER WITH THE SHERBINO
Running close to 150 events each year isn’t easy. And, as valuable as the Sherbino staff is to making everything happen, they couldn’t do it without a dedicated team of volunteers. Whether providing governance and oversight as a board member or literally staffing an event, volunteers are the lifeblood of the Sherbino.
