Welcome to Occidental Center for the Arts

In the spirit of promoting the safety and well-being of our audiences, performers and artists, we are suspending our events through May. We will resume classes and small group meetings as soon as it is deemed safe by the authorities.

This decision has been made with hope that social distancing now will assist with the containment of COVID19, and will allow us all to resume normal activities as quickly as possible. We will be rescheduling all of the events impacted by this decision, and send an email announcement as soon as new dates are secured. If you purchased tickets to an event that was cancelled, you will receive a full refund. To join our email list, scroll to the bottom of this page to register. If you have any questions, comments or concerns please don’t hesitate to reach out.

In the 10 mile radius of Occidental, we have some of the most talented musicians, artists, and actors in Sonoma County.  Our wish to bring world class talent to our small town was also developed with the idea to create a space for local artists to perform, develop, and display their work.

Today we have an acoustically excellent auditorium, with a professional stage, light and sound board, audience seating with great sight lines, an art gallery, and an art classroom. The Redwood Arts Council and Occidental Community Choir, long-term community presenting organizations, have made OCA their preferred performance venue. We have performances, literary events and visual art exhibits year round.
