Located along the picturesque Arkansas River, Steam Plant Theater is a multi-purpose venue that hosts electrifying dance shows, feet-tapping and head-banging music concerts along with corporate conferences. Fully loaded with the very best in lighting and sound, the theater can entertain 222 guests at a time. Facing administrative tribulations for over a century, it finally has stabilized to being the main head-turner for tourists who visit the Arkansas River walk. The theater space is also available for staging private events.
So named because of the use the building was originally put to, the SteamPlant Event Center is situated right on the banks of the Arkansas River. This entertainment complex is where the SteamPlant Theater, which plays host to concerts, plays and movie screenings is located. Two art galleries, the Paquette Gallery and the Sculpture Garden are also housed within this complex. If there are any private events you need to organize, the Ballroom, Theater Lobby, Riverside Annex and Monarch Mountain rooms should meet your requirements.
