a wonderful place to see the arts

Recently remodeled, this is a great venue for the arts. I actually wish that it was at least twice the size.

Independent film, art exhibits, performances. Great place to experience some out of the mainstream culture. The new renovation is terrific.

Aging jazz singer doing Paris related oldies. This was right out of the "way back" machine like almost 100 years for some songs. It was good and mellow. Almost torch singer rather than jazz to me. The Dairy Center is SOOO much better than the last time I was there. Really great makeover and nice small performance areas. Great patio.

We went to see Wendy Woo and her favorite fellow musicians and we're delighted by the experience. Snacks and beverages available, a free art show and then an outstanding concert in an intimate setting.

I have attended several plays and events in the space it is quite adequate to the task. Parking behind. The quality of the visit depends upon the content of the show visited. I have seen several productions of the Catamounts Theater there which have been fantastic.

I used this space when it was an abandoned warehouse that once moved milk products from here to there. Great hulking cobwebbed rooms--what could be done with it?

Fun small theatre for performances, art shows and independent films. I've attended all three at the Dairy Center. Staff are pleasant, seating is good, and events are well organized. I look forward to the next event at the Dairy Center!
