“The first time here I asked, ‘What did I get myself into?’ Now it’s become my favorite performing arts center in the country.”

Live Music on Cape Cod! 

Our 2020 Season is now complete. We were so proud to have built our Drive-in Live stage at the Ballfield. It was a herculean effort but it was essential for us to continue our mission to bring quality entertainment to the outer Cape...even during a pandemic!

In normal times, Payomet Performing Arts Center is a music powerhouse. Over 5 short years, we've turned our little corner of the world into a music venue that has become a favorite for so many musicians. And now with our brand new tent with it's continuous roof and wooden dance floor, a stage that is higher and twice as large to give artists room to move, terrific sight lines...we are just hitting our stride!

We are hopful that we will be rolling out dates for concerts in 2022 soon on our MUSIC EVENTS page.
