Carbondale has long been known as a community with the glitz and glamour of a big city because of the influence of the performing arts associated with Southern Illinois University. Enjoy the magic of the Southern Illinois Symphony performances at historic Shryock Auditorium. Share the excitement of center stage with ten thousand other people... under the lights of the SIUC Arena... or in the intimate community theater setting of the Jackson County Stage Company. Summer Playhouse, hosted by the SIUC Department of Theater in McLeod Theater, is always a crowd pleaser!

Our galleries showcase the work of many local artists. As you enjoy hanging out with great things hanging on walls ... you'll notice that many of our gallery locations are in historic buildings and unique shopping districts. You are guaranteed a pleasant experience!
