The Grand is an amazing facility due its thoughtful development as a professional arts organization and educative center within City government, as well as an important public resource as an economic redevelopment project in downtown Tracy. Hundreds of community leaders, arts patrons, educators and parents contributed to the planning process that ultimately designed the amenities and programming of the Center.
This municipal interdisciplinary arts center is the only one of its kind in the state of California offering professional and community-based fine arts programming through arts education, exhibitions, performances and rentals of all kinds, in a single complex, and is one of only small network of similar facilities in America.
The 37,000+ square foot facility opened in September of 2007, hosts 50,000 patrons a year, and is currently celebrating its 11th Anniversary Season in 2017-18. The Center is owned and operated by the City of Tracy and managed by the Cultural Arts Division in the City Manager’s Office. The Grand Foundation is a private 501.(C)3 fundraising and community partner providing annual underwriting for programming and technical support, as well as contributing to an endowment fund to provide long-term financial stability.
