Arts and Entertainment

From concerts and theatre to highly anticipated community events, Vallejo is bursting with vibrant cultural outlets.

The Downtown Vallejo Arts & Entertainment District is a hot spot for local culture, featuring a fantastic mix of galleries, studios, shops and restaurants. The district is anchored by the Empress Theatre, a circa 1912 Beaux Arts-style theatre that has been completely restored to serve as a top center for the performing arts in the Bay Area. Today, this local landmark features an assortment of events, including musical, dance and theatrical performances as well as community events. The Empress Theatre is operated by the Vallejo Community Arts Foundation.

Another shining gem in our community is The Fetterly Playhouse for the Arts, managed by Vallejo Music Theatre. Fetterly Playhouse is home to Vallejo Symphony Orchestra and the Fetterly Gallery. Additional cultural organizations with a presence in town include the MIRA Theatre Guild at the Bay Terrace Theater (Vallejo’s first and longest-running community theatre), the Vallejo Choral Society, the Vallejo Artists Guild and the North Bay Opera.

The Vallejo area also presents an assortment of exciting annual events throughout the year. The Solano County Fair is a popular gathering occurring each year in Vallejo. Celebrated in August, the event brings thousands of guests who enjoy competitive exhibits, livestock competitions, live entertainment, carnival rides, food, beverages and much, much more. Additionally, communitywide events garner large local crowds each year and include the following celebrations: Juneteenth, July 4th, the Great Vallejo Ducky Derby, the Pirate Festival on the Vallejo Waterfront, the Wednesday Night Celebrations in downtown during the summer and the Mad Hatter Holiday Festival at Christmas time, just to name a few.
