Mission Statement

The Community Center For The Performing Arts is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to: Providing Diverse arts and educational events for Eugene, Oregon and Lane County. Maintaining and preserving the historic Woodmen of the World Hall. Meeting the needs of the youth of our community.


The WOW hall is a non-profit educational arts facility. The CCPA is dedicated to providing a safe and friendly meeting place for the community, a place for appreciation of the arts for all ages and income levels, and a training ground for new generations. Local, regional, national and international acts frequently grace the stage, and the Hall prides itself on the diversity. Shows range from concerts of folk, rock, reggae, jazz, blues, pop, punk, electronic, hip-hop and world beat music to dance, theater, film and circus performances. Many artists have released works recorded at the W.O.W. Hall. The Hall is also used for classes, workshops, lectures, meetings, rehearsals and recording sessions. The Lobby Art Gallery features the work of a different regional artist each month. Alcohol is confined to the downstairs, which features a sound and video relay from the Main Hall. The CCPA puts on its own productions as well as renting the Hall to outside promoters. Other nonprofit groups receive reduced rates for meetings and benefit performances. Our poster distribution service is available to the community, with reduced rates for non-profits. The CCPA runs on volunteer energy and volunteer training is provided monthly. W.O.W. Hall volunteers develop job skills while demonstrating dependability, punctuality and the ability to work as part of a team. Many volunteers have advanced to staff positions with the CCPA, Hult Center and other local employers. The CCPA currently has over 450 active volunteers, more than half of them teenagers. A volunteer Board of Directors meets monthly and oversees the overall operation of the Hall. Day-to-day operations are cooperatively managed by an extremely dedicated staff, whose workload far exceeds their compensation. The CCPA is committed to providing arts for all ages. With the exception of rentals and seated shows, admission for ages 6 through 11 is half-price when accompanied by parent or adult guardian and ages five and under get in free. In a community often criticized for it's lack of recreational opportunities for youths, the CCPA not only provides a space for kids and teenagers to enjoy live concerts, it actively involves youths in planning, promoting, performing at and staffing shows.
