Cultural Events

The City of Gainesville Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs offers a co-sponsorship program to local artists for cultural events held at the Thomas Center. If a proposed cultural event fits within the specific parameters of this program, the organizers are eligible to pay reduced rental rates. The Spanish Court, with its glass ceiling, offers excellent acoustics and is the most unique performance space in Gainesville. Festivals, recitals, play readings and concerts all occur regularly for the benefit of the community.
