We attend at least four events a year from country to lectures and have never been disappointed. The quality of this theater is outstanding and the people serve us as guests every time.

I've been to more rock concerts in more cities than I can count, and never had such a negative experience as I did at the Styx concert on July 30, 2014. The venue is a small, intimate venue for a rock concert, which one would think would be great. The problem is the patrons of the center (patrons of the... More

My daughter wanted to see The Nutcracker and in the Gallo Center it was perfect. We got all dressed up even though it's business casual. We wanted to feel like we were actually in the city. The experience was great and needless to say only 5 minute drive from our house. I recommend any event at the Gallo Center.

Friends if you haven't gone to a show at The Gallo Arts please do so, every seat in both theaters are GREAT. Outstanding performers come to Gallo Arts. When you seat in your seat you always have a wonderful view of the stage. Our favorite theater is Foster Theater it's smaller perfect views.

State of the arts theatre. All the seats are wonderful. Very comfortable with good viewing of the stage. The ushers are very helpful. The bathrooms are large so you get out quickly during intermissions. You need to get to the theatre early to get good parking though I would not hesitate on going back to Gallo.

Great shows for adults and kids. There are several good restaurants and fast food places within walking distance. Great parking also. Not far from the freeway if you coming out of town.

Beautifully built center with ultra cushy seating. All seats seem to have a great view of the stage. Wide variety of shows, too!

The Gallo Center for the Arts has a great variety of shows to choose from throughout the year. It is a beautiful place to visit. Seating is a bit cramped & feels a little uncomfortable, especially during a long performance. However, there is not a bad seat in the entire place as far as being able to see the stage... More

I visited Gallo Center for the Arts in March to see John Legend, not my first, and certainly won't be my last. The place is not large, so it felt very intimate, even from the balcony. The acoustics were amazing, and the place was well kept. Really, I would recommend it to anyone. I have two minor changes that I... More

You are really missing out if you don't attend a performance at least once a month at the Gallo! I have gone to numerous performances since 2008 and always find them entertaining. We are truly blessed to have such a fine facility in our community. Now I don't have to travel to San Francisco for quality shows.
