Performing Arts Complex

 

We are currently accepting requests for venue rentals through June 30, 2025. 

To request a date, please complete the Preliminary Request for Use form and Equipment Checklist below and submit these documents to pacinfo@chabotcollege.edu.

Please note that as of December 21, 2021, the Grand Court and Amphitheater are not available for use. Because of this we will not be able to accept events/festivals that require a large outdoor space.

The Performing Arts Complex is one of the East Bay's premier live event venues, and is accessible to Chabot College and the community. We support student success in education, progress in the workplace and engagement with the civic and cultural life of the diverse East Bay community.

The majority of our events take place in the Reed L. Buffington Visual & Performing Arts Center, which is a 1,432 seat auditorium hosting over 100 diverse events each year. Our regular events include theatrical performances, fundraisers, arts competitions and live concerts. In addition to extensive backstage features, we have our own hard-working production staff, including a stage management crew, lighting and sound operators, and a strong Front of House team.
