As a part of our annual Gala dinner fundraising event, the Academy Center of the Arts will temporarily close the section of Main Street in front of the Historic Academy Theatre to host an exclusive dinner on the street.

Please note that this is a combined indoor and outdoor event. Dress is semi-formal and comfortable. We are also sensitive to the impacts COVID-19 has on our community. Following CDC guidelines, guests are encouraged to wear masks indoors and will be allowed to sit anywhere they desire in the theatre, socially distancing themselves from other guests (the Gala is a 300 person capacity event in an 800+ seat venue).
