Center for Performing Arts Carmel

The Center for Performing Arts

The Center for Performing Arts in Carmel is composed of three venues next to the Monon Trail: the Palladium (large concert hall), the Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre (a 500-seat theater) and the Studio Theater (home of the Actors Theatre of Indiana). Attend a concert, play, musical or class at this impressive campus just south of City Center Drive. If you’re looking for something to eat before or after an event, there are several restaurants in walking distance or eat at a restaurant along another section of the trail.

Note that during the summer, the plaza at the Center for Performing Arts is used for the Carmel Farmers market and in the winter the area is converted into an ice skating rink and Christkindlmarkt.


Exit the Monon trail near the tunnel under City Center Drive to reach The Center for Performing Arts.
