Cultural Arts

Fountain Inn has become known as an up-and-coming arts minded community. Since 2008, the city’s Younts Center for Performing Arts has been the home of a resident theater company, chorale, symphony orchestra and a diverse roster of visiting artists. The new faces that the arts have brought to the community have spurred a revitalization of Fountain Inn’s downtown and brought the city to prominence as a major cultural and artistic player in the Golden Strip landscape.

During 2016-2017, there were more than 40 arts events on the calendar – all of which brought something unique and special. The resident companies had 33 performances on the calendar, and added great feature shows, including legends Larry Gatlin, Rick Alviti (Elvis Tribute) – with eight straight years of sellouts, big band music from Benny Goodman, The Four Freshmen and tributes to Stevie Wonder and The Eagles.

With a performing arts center, a history museum and an active schedule of community events and festivals, Fountain Inn has pulled itself up and brought in new people and new ideas. A rich cultural and artistic community makes for a happier citizenry, and those are just some of the things that make Fountain Inn a great place to live.
