Beautiful theatre and art gallery complex. Attended a piano concert in one of the smaller multi-purpose theaters - excellent acoustics, comfortable seating….really well done. Center has free parking, and is conveniently located. Friendly staff for admissions, nice cafe…all round, a great place to see a show or concert.
I love the diversity of events that they have at the Dairy.
