We believe that the arts not only enhance our everyday lives, it also helps define our culture. We put aside differences and come together as we enjoy something beautiful, intriguing, or up-lifting.  

California Center for the Arts has been the place to enjoy creativity, conversation, and celebration since 1994. For over 25 years, the Center has been the cultural hub of North County, bringing people together to enjoy our programs, events, and resources that benefit over 290,000 people annually. No matter what, we are dedicated to making arts accessible for EVERYONE in our community.

With the mission of bringing people together to discover, create and celebrate both the visual and performing arts, the California Center for the Arts, Escondido continues to be the premiere cultural center of North San Diego County.
