In 1996, the Dixie Center for the Arts held their first meeting and began casting a vision for the restoration of this historical and cultural treasure. For a full decade, devoted members ran creative and successful fundraising campaigns and events that brought in the necessary funds to restore the Dixie Theater. A grand celebration and re-opening was held in 2006, and full seasons of events, parties, and concerts have reinstated the Dixie as a center to be the Home and Heart of the Arts in North Central Louisiana.
The Dixie regularly partners with the Ruston Community Theater and the North Central Louisiana Arts Council resulting in their continuously packed schedule of varied types of entertainment events. Find out more about these organizations and events by clicking the links above.
