Save the Date for the 2021 Grand Marquee Gala!

Saturday, April 10, 2021

The Grand Marquee Gala serves as the main fundraising event for the nonprofit Paramount Theater. This elegantly themed evening includes entertainment, food & cocktails, a silent auction, raffle, and dancing. Most importantly, proceeds from the event support the dynamic programming, arts education opportunities, and access to the arts for everyone in our community. Since reopening in 2004, The Paramount Theater:

  • Hosted over 1.1 million patrons at 2,779 events,
  • provided several thousand community access tickets to nearly 100 nonprofit partners, and annually hosted numerous free events open to the community,
  • welcomed 208,581 students and teachers for live performances on stage through the Arts Education Program, and
  • serves as an essential part of the cultural and economic vitality of Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall.
