The Hult Center for the Performing Arts is a performing arts venue in Eugene, Oregon.

The Hult Center is located downtown on Willamette Street between 6th & 7th Avenues, adjacent to the Graduate Eugene (previously Hilton Eugene) and Conference Center. Built using funds that were approved by voters in 1978, the Hult Center and the Hilton were completed in 1982 as part of the same urban renewal project.

The Hult Center is operated by the City of Eugene and is one of two performing arts venues owned by the City. Cuthbert Amphitheater, located in Eugene's Alton Baker Park, is also owned by the City and is operated by Kesey Enterprises.

Twenty-seven architectural firms competed for the opportunity to design the Center, but in the end, the Eugene City Council awarded the contract to the New York firm of Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer Associates. The firm had previously designed the $7.5-million, 2,700-seat Minneapolis Orchestra Hall and the $13-million Boettcher Concert Hall at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.

  • This was a great place to see one of our favorite bands. It was the Punch Brothers and we got to see them at the Bach Festival. I enjoyed the concert and the wonderful seats and the awesome interior.....  more »
  • We have seen both comedians and musicians here and the sound is great. We'll be back in May to see Black Violin again.  more »

  • This is the best venue to see your favorite artist. The sound is amazing and the views are spectacular. The parking is very nice as well. Lots of great places to eat around the area. Every seat has a good veiw.
  • Saw the lion king. It was awesome. Upper balcony seats are great but would probably go for lower balcony next time. The kids loved the show and they have a wide variety of both kid friendly and adult beverages. The staff was very polite and helpful.
