A community center for the arts

Aerial at Orcas CenterIncorporated in 1976, Orcas Center is a non-profit arts and cultural organization located on Orcas Island in the San Juan archipelago of northwest Washington State.

The arts and cultural hub of our community, Orcas Center is filled with a wide range of activities. We present and produce dance, music, theatre and visual arts by local and visiting artists. We host various other local cultural events. We offer diverse learning opportunities for adults and children. We provide a warm, attractive venue for public and private events.

Orcas Center’s tagline, Something For Everyone, is not just a catchy slogan. It is a guiding principle by which we develop and present our season programming. If we are successful in any given year, our audiences will include a majority of Orcas residents along with visitors to the island.
