Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts’ mission is to present traditional and contemporary arts of interest to worldwide audiences, to create opportunities for audiences to have thought-provoking experiences with artists and speakers, and to foster creative expression, diversity in thought, and awareness of cultural heritage.

The Center has made major shifts in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are moving forward through our 2021–22 with new policies and procedures in place to keep artists, staff, and patrons safe. You can review our current policies and procedures here.

We take pride in serving artists and audiences and remain flexible to changing needs. We believe to rebuild, reimagine, and unify our community in these times we must lift up creative thinkers and visionary voices to challenge and inspire us.
