Portland Center for the Arts (PCA)
Performing Arts Organizations
Portland'5 Centers for the Arts brings over 1,000 music, theater, dance, and lecture performances to Portland each year because we know that art matters. Art brings joy, inspires the mind, and unites communities. Art changes lives.
As the 5th largest performing arts center in the U.S., we are national leaders in keeping art and culture thriving. Our five venues draw over one million patrons to downtown Portland’s Cultural District and generate an average of $60 million in regional spending every year. With the help of Metro and the Metropolitan Exposition Recreation Commission, we are able to connect with the public to offer the performances that are most valuable to our community.
