I love going to listen to music or watching the various dance performances at the Civic Center. So glad that this was established. Here's some information about the civic center that I located. The Des Moines Performing Arts is a non-profit arts organization that owns and operates the 2,735-seat Des Moines Civic Center located on Walnut Street. Established by local business leaders in 1979, the organization presents the Willis Broadway Series and other world-class productions such as The Dance Series and the Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield Family Series.The Des Moines Civic Center was a part of the revitalization of the downtown area of the city, and past performers include Victor Borge, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Sarah Vaughan, and many more. In addition to the Des Moines Civic Center, the organization also operates Cowles Commons, the Stoner Theater, and the Temple Theater. If you are looking for date night ideas in Des Moines, watch a performance at this unique venue.

Saw Hamilton at the Civic center on July 14th with my husband and LOVED the show as well as the venue! The staff working that day were also very helpful and nice! Was definitely worth the couple hour drive and will absolutely be back!

One of the rudest people I ever talked to and she is the director of ticketing. Stay away from this place as even the supervisors find that it is fine to yell at their customers.

Paying $300 to see a show like Hamilton is like paying $25 for a loaf of bread. Unreal. I got my London tickets for 37 pounds and my flight for $199.00. Just thoughts.

Relaxing evening at the Sympohony. High quality performance. Comfortable seating at the CC.

Clean facilities, friendly staff, well set up and several exits help it clear out however the lack of a middle aisle was really disappointing. If you need to get out of your seat you have to crawl over so many people and other theater goers are forced to do the same. Not terrible but a little distracting and seems hazardous.

They do not give much information on their online ticket ordering system. They tell you when the tickets go on sale but do not say that they are a queue system based on when you go online, nor do they tell you when they open up their queue. (And if they do they don't make that info easy to find or readily available). Also they state that tickets bought by secondary sellers or brokers will be refunded and voided, yet while I was still in queue to buy tickets I could log onto multiple different ticket selling sites and find available tickets there. So their screening system for that is near useless. Overall I wasn't able to get the tickets I wanted because of a lack of helpful information on their part and the inability to keep large ticket vendors from buying out blocks of tickets and selling them at inflated rates.

Been to a handful of shows and they were all good. Not a bad seat in the house.

A great place to see a performance or Broadway show in the heart of Des Moines! The Civic Center has been entertaining Iowa for 30 years now!

Great selection of traveling Broadway shows. Well worth the season tickets.
