Grand Theatre Center for the Arts - Events
The Grand Theatre is a gem in Downtown Tracy. It is truly an amazing facility due its thoughtful development as a professional arts organization and educative center within City government, as well as an important public resource as an economic redevelopment project. Hundreds of community leaders, arts patrons, educators and parents contributed to the planning process that ultimately designed the amenities and programming of the Center.
This municipal interdisciplinary arts center is the only one of its kind in the state of California offering professional and community-based fine arts programming through arts education, exhibitions, and performances of all kinds, and is one of only a handful of similar facilities in America.
The 37,000+ square foot facility opened in September of 2007 and is celebrating its 8th Anniversary during the 2014-15 Season. The Center is owned and operated by the City of Tracy and managed by the Cultural Arts Division in the City Manager's Office.
