“It is one of a few places in Fairfield County where it is possible to see high‐quality entertainers at reasonable prices. It is one of a handful of significant arts venues in Stamford and as such ought to be fiercely protected.”

– Palace Patron

Annual Gala

The Palace Theatre Gala is a benefit for The Palace Theatre and its Arts Education Programs.

The evening features a pre-show cocktail party followed by a performance on the main stage.  This past year, the entertainment was Steve Martin & the Steep Canyon Rangers along with Edie Brickell. Other artists have included Diana Ross, Liza Minnelli, and David Brubeck.

The monies raised from the event support Arts Education programs such as the Triple Threat Performer Intensive, Young Choreographers Festival, summer and in-school-time performances on the HARMAN Stage and the annual Emerging Young Artist Scholarship awarded to a talented young artist in Fairfield County. This scholarship is awarded at the Gala.

The annual Arts Ovation Award is also given at the event to an individual or group of individuals who make significant contributions to the community of Stamford, and in particular, to the arts. Sponsorship opportunities are available for the event by calling Lisa in the Development Department at 203-517-3426.
