ad the misfortune of interacting with the Director of the Tri-Lakes Performing Arts Center. I found his behavior to be appalling. He was unprofessional, demeaning, refused to accept any sort of responsibility, and he was dishonest on multiple occasions. My husband and I are stunned and hurt by the way he treated us. We purchased tickets for an event that was rescheduled because of bad weather, we were disappointed but understanding. Then it was rescheduled again because of COVID (we weren't notified at all, all other venues where we purchased tickets, notified us immediately by email, but I managed to find the information on the website). Again, we understood. According to the Tri-Lakes Performing Arts Center's own website, the event was rescheduled for September. We were making plans for September and I wanted to ensure the concert was still happening. So I reached out with a quick but polite facebook message. The response I received was excessive at best. Basically, it read like a how dare you bother me with such a question, we're manned by volunteers and you're asking them to jeopardize their lives for a concert. Then, the author of the message informed me that the concert was proposed indefinitely as a new date hadn't been set. So, I asked for a refund and pointed out that I was simply relying on information contained on the website. I received a nasty response that it wasn't necessary to put that type of information on their website. I informed the author that I thought his or her behavior was rude and asked to speak with the supervisor. Then I was informed that I was talking to the Director and that he was a "Doctor," and that he had to let his staff go (I thought they were all volunteers-I bet he still gets a salary). He told me he would call me but he wouldn't tell me when, so I could make myself available. The next day at 5:00 pm, I received a message asking for my number, before I had a chance to respond, I received two more message, one thanked me for my "magnificent support" and the other said the concert had been rescheduled for 4 March (I find that odd since the day before he didn't have a date) and he basically said too bad because he was processing my refund. Then, he blocked me on messenger before I could respond with my number. My husband called him and left a message and his call was never returned. A week later and I have not received any type of a refund on my card or a check, although he doesn't have our address (thankfully), so I don't expect a check. Ideally, we would like to receive a refund and never have to interact with Tri-Lakes Performing Art Center again. I also hope that that my experience serves as a warning to others. In this tight economy, where every dollar counts, there are far more professional and deserving non-profits that appreciate their patrons and treat them decently. Please, utilize your money toward their benefit and not Tri-Lakes Performing Arts Center.

Mike Maddox is a master at getting unique and talented people to provide entertainment in the area. This hidden gem allows you to get up close andv personal with a variety of musical talent. The place only holds 200 people so it's a very intimate venue to enjoy your concerts.

We visted here during an art show weekend. They had some very nice pieces. The staff is very courteous and knowledgeable. The women's bathroom makes you feel like you are in Tuscany! The bar area is incredible.

Tri-lakes center for the Arts displays and offers for sale locally produced art of many genres. There are studios for artists at the center. Concerts are held 6-8 times per year, usually on Friday evenings. Look at their website for a list of upcoming musicians and events. Small venue inside with talented performers from all over the United States. There is alcohol for sale at the concerts and occasionally food. There are many restaurants close by such as The Villa.

There's this simple warehouse-type building with discreet signage on Highway 105 in Palmer Lake...that screams..."come see what's inside because no one knows who I am".... Tri-Lakes Center is a place that holds a WEALTH of cool local art and an eclectic place for events. Not sure why there isn't sufficient robust signage, more out-there community promotion, and promos of cool events there...but I'm telling you this is a great space, with hungry talented artists, and vast potential. In fact, I'm going to revisit perhaps in February and take a look around again. Don't cheat yourself: go take a jaunt. You might find the artistic treasure you've always wanted!
