DES MOINES CIVIC CENTER
The Des Moines Civic Center opened its doors in June of 1979. Since then, the venue has built a reputation as one of the nation’s leading theaters to experience a touring Broadway performance, concert or other special presentation. The Civic Center is also the performance home of the Des Moines Symphony.
The Des Moines Civic Center features a 76-foot wide by 28-foot high proscenium stage, which is the focal point for a fan-shaped continental seating area that accommodates an audience of 2,744.
The Des Moines Civic Center will not be conducting in-person tours at this time. To inquire about tour date availability, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

"The arts help us understand ourselves as human beings. If you look at how we've ever documented our existence, it's all through an art form."
