Formed in 1990, the Poway Center for the Performing Arts Foundation, or PCPAF is the nonprofit organization responsible for booking professional artists into the city-owned Poway Center for the Performing Arts. Each year the Foundation assembles a line-up of top-notch talent from the worlds of drama, dance, music, comedy and more.




The PCPAF is about Arts in Education


Additionally, the PCPAF, in partnership with the City of Poway and the Poway Unified School District, presents its Arts in Education Initiative, a series a programs designed to provide theater and Arts experiences for the children of the Poway Unified School District.


The PCPAF is about Community

    • Our vision is to create a cultural town center - a unique environment where neighbors can sit shoulder-to-shoulder for an entertaining and enriching evening of live performances.
    • Buy your tickets today to get the PCPAF experience. Begin with a walk around the lobby where the works of local painters and other visual artists are featured.  Stop by the POW VIP table to find out about upcoming shows and special events.  Visit our multi-media kiosk for previews of upcoming shows.  Connect with friends in our lobby bar, or pick up a snack at our concessions stand.
