In 1996, we earned the privilege of serving as the official venue for the 1996 Olympic Games' Cultural Olympiad. We have also been the home of the Atlanta Opera since 2003. Our extraordinary and highly diverse productions have included celebrated blockbuster Broadway shows such as Riverdance, Miss Saigon, Les Miserables, The Wizard of Oz and Show Boat.

The Civic Center has also hosted an array of Gospel Plays and Concerts, including the Stellar Gospel Music Awards. Meeting Facilities In addition to our 4,600 seat theatre, we offer 5,800 square feet of meeting space to accommodate corporate meetings and private receptions. We have served as the meeting facility of choice for corporate giants such as General Electric, Home Depot, Fox Television, IBM, General Motors, Walt Disney Special Events Group, and Honda.
