Today’s Civic

The Dalles Civic Auditorium sits at the heart of The Dalles, providing a true community gathering place with spaces suitable for a wide range of events. From the grand Ballroom to the intimate Fireside room, the Civic has been the venue of choice for weddings; Celebrations of Life; parties, concerts and plays; business conferences; and classes of all kinds.

The Preservation Committee’s current goal is to complete the building’s restoration with renovation of the Civic’s theatre.  As the largest space in the Civic, the theatre once seated up to 1,000 people for plays, movies, concerts and athletic competitions.

Completed, the theatre will become a central gathering spot for large performances and will greatly increase the Civic’s capacity to house large conferences from within the community and beyond.
