Music // Circus // Theater // Ideas

Outside the box, inside the community

Welcome to Payomet!
We are a non-profit performing arts organization committed to our mission - to produce and present diverse music, circus, and theater events rooted in strong relationships – with our audience, the surrounding communities, and the artists who grace our stage. In the course of just twenty years, Payomet has become a world class cultural destination. Our audiences love the range – jazz to rock to bluegrass to New Orleans brass bands. Our theater productions are mostly original. And our exciting Cirque by the Sea professional circus shows are one of a kind as is our Circus Camp for kids. What guides us is a desire to stay fresh, to strive for the highest artistic standards and to engage and listen to our audience. The key lies in the relationships we build... with the community and with the artists we present. Whenever possible, we create educational opportunities from our performances, bringing the arts into our neighborhoods and schools. We look forward to seeing you at the Tent and at the many other venues where we present!
