Jasper Arts Center
In the 1970s a not-for-profit group, called the Jasper Auditorium Corporation was created in order to promote the building of a civic auditorium. The fundraising campaign resulted in the construction of Jasper Civic Auditorium (later renamed the Jasper Arts Center) which was completed in 1977. An addition in March of 1983 created a lobby, additional restrooms, a ticket booth, concession area, and coat room.
The auditorium seats 675 and has hosted international, national, and regional acts for more than forty years. Tony Bennett, Chet Atkins, the St. Petersburg's Ballet, Marie Osmond, Chris Botti, and Wynonna Judd are some of the many acts that have performed at the Jasper Arts Center. Jasper Community Arts continues to present live performances at the Jasper Arts Center as part of its performing arts programming.
