Farmington is fortunate enough to have a number of cultural outlets in the performing arts, with the only community theater group in San Juan County, the Theater Ensemble Arts, Inc., providing three productions each season (October through April). The Civic Center Foundation for the Performing Arts presents off-Broadway performances at its 1,200-seat performing arts theater at the Farmington Civic Center, while the Silhouette Performing Arts Series, sponsored by San Juan College, presents outstanding family entertainment each year.
The newly renovated Totah Theater, located in Downtown Farmington, is another option, which holds a modern 200-seat theater. And, in the summer months, make sure to check out the Outdoor Summer Theater, which presents popular productions Thursdays through Sundays at 8:00 p.m. What’s more, the area is home to the 65-piece San Juan Symphony, which presents four concerts at the Henderson Fine Arts Center Performance Hall at San Juan College every season.
Peruse through one of Farmington’s fabulous art galleries; you are sure to find what you need, whether you are a shopper looking for the perfect piece of work or you are an artist in need of supplies.
