The mission of the Penn Valley Community Foundation is to build and operate a Cultural Center in Penn Valley which will serve as a gathering place for the community, a meeting place for the many non-profit organizations in the area, and a venue for cultural, educational, recreational and leisure activities for all ages and residents.


The Penn Valley Cultural Center will feature a 5,000 square foot Nevada County Library, a Visitor’s Center hosted by the Penn Valley Chamber of Commerce, a Performance Hall which will be the new home of InConcert Sierra and the Sierra Master Chorale, as well as the Lake Wildwood Theatre and Lake Wildwood Women’s Chorus! Additional performances by Sierra Stages, events held by The Union and many other exciting productions will also take place in the new Cultural Center!

It will seat 562 and will be convertible to dinner seating for 360. It will feature a certified commercial kitchen, meeting rooms, a large outdoor courtyard for indoor and/or outdoor events, and permanent and traveling art displays.  Parking for 344 vehicles will be available as part of the “campus” on the 4.77 acres.

This exciting venue will be available to rent for concerts and theater productions, conferences, weddings, meetings large and small, and much more, playing host to all of Western Nevada County.
