Jose Feliciano performed, and all of the artists were talented and generous with their time.

I went for a formal event. It was good. The center is very nice and I'm sure all events are well presented.

Love the acoustics, availability of parking, and proximity to Grand Ave and its restaurants. Not a bad seat the house. We enjoy the array of concerts presented there.

Playbill schedule have lots of variety. Great for rentals for special occasions. I have been to two, one outdoors, one in the smaller theatre for a dinner. Casual for one, fancy for other. Enjoyed Several major performances in the past.

Escondido, a medium-size, culturally diverse city, is home to an amazing facility--two concert venues and serious community outreach. Schedule a visit or check out the programming if you're planning a visit anywhere in San Diego County. (Grape Day Park is adjacent with exhibits on Old California.)

We love this annual event and hope it keeps going, but I don't go to many performances here because the seats are crammed in & it is hard to get my legs comfortable. Staff members though are pleasant & the acoustics are very good.

In the remote North County of San Diego there is very little of what you would call culture, and the Center for the Arts is one major exception to that statement. We have seen great productions by several artists there. The museum is small, but it changes often so a return visit is never the same.
