Thomasville Center for the Arts

The intimacy and excellent acoustics of the 500-seat auditorium of the Thomasville Center for the Arts make it an exceptional venue for the TEF concert series. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the Center is housed in the former East Side School, constructed in 1915 and restored in 1986 as a home for the visual and performing arts.


Convenient free parking is available in the Center’s adjacent parking lot, accessed from the 600 block of East Jackson Street (US Bus. 319), between Hansell Street and Glenwood Drive. Additional parking is available on the opposite side of the building at the Center's 600 East Washington Street entrance.

A Thomasville Center for the Arts marquee marks the entrance to the parking lot.
