Town of Dillon Overview
Situated on the northeastern shore of Lake Dillon Reservoir, Dillon is a small-town community with a big heart. You’d never guess today that the original town was located beneath the deep blue waters of the lake. Before the reservoir was created for Denver’s water storage needs, Dillon sat at the convergence of three rivers. Comprised of a cluster of cabins and a trading post, the tiny community was relocated to its present site.
Now this mountain town is host to a variety of amenities enjoyed by both residents and visitors. Lakeshore condominiums provide unbeatable scenic vistas year round, and a central town core sports shopping, dining, and entertainment options. A multiplex movie theater, microbrewery, and national retail stores add to Dillon’s attractions.
The award-winning Lake Dillon Theatre Company is Summit County’s only professional theater company, producing five winter season productions and five summer musicals each year. The very popular Sunset at the Summit Concert Series held at the Lake Dillon Amphitheatre provides ten free Saturday-night concerts during the summer.
The Dillon Farmer’s Market attracts shoppers every Friday from June 10 through September 2 (except for August 5) with fresh farm produce, crafts, and colorful wares displayed in vendor booths.
During the winter months, Dillon’s central location to the ski areas of Keystone, Arapahoe Basin, Breckenridge, and Copper Mountain makes it ideal for exploring all Summit County has to offer.
