Our mission is to build a performing arts center to advance the cultural and economic vitality of our region.

WHY DOES TRI-CITIES NEED A PERFORMING ARTS CENTER?

The Mid-Columbia region is the fourth largest metropolitan area in Washington State and is unique in its lack of adequate cultural infrastructure, despite its vibrant performing arts community. The Mid-Columbia Performing Arts Center will significantly benefit the region first and foremost by providing a home for the exceptional performing arts offerings that already exist in Tri-Cities, which will elevate the perception of the area as a culturally focused, vibrant destination to live, work, stay, and play. Additionally, the MCPAC offers a gathering space for educational, artistic, and community events, and provides a location to host mid-sized touring acts that currently pass us by.  The return on investment is clear, and we’re grateful for your enthusiasm and support for this essential addition to our region.
