Arts and Entertainment

The Pomona Arts Colony is a cluster of shops, galleries and other spaces devoted to art in all of its visual and musical forms. What began as a few small spaces clustered around 2nd and Main streets in Downtown Pomona, now sprawls across three blocks, encompassing large galleries and smaller spaces.

Pomona draws its inspirations from a number of sources, amongst them the old Fox Theatre, once the showplace for first-run movies during the 1930s-1950s.

The City manages to combine old-world drama with modern urban flair. The Arts Colony itself is distinguished by its bright colors and young feel, and of course, by the art.

Music lovers will enjoy the Pomona Concert Band performances, including a special outdoor summer program. Pomona’s downtown district is also filled with entertainment and music options, ranging from nightly entertainment in restaurants to coffee house performances, and both Cal Poly Pomona University and Mt. San Antonio College offer Performing Arts Centers with high quality dramatic productions.

Museum

The Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum is housed in a 28,500- square-foot building on the edge of the historic Los Angeles County Fairplex. The museum features an impressive array of vintage and historical racing vehicles, along with photographs, trophies, helmets and driving uniforms, artifacts, paintings, and other memorabilia chronicling more than 50 years of American motorsports. The L.A. County Fair at Pomona’s Fairplex is rated number 4 of the top 50 fairs and festivals in North America.
