A little about us

The Burlington Performing Arts Centre (BPAC) is a charitable organization, a world-class venue, a presenter, an educator,
a public place, the cultural hub of the community and the focal point for performing arts activity in downtown Burlington.

BPAC’s Presenting Season provides Burlington and surrounding areas direct access to the diversity and richness of Canadian and international work in music, comedy, theatre, dance and family programming. Our Sponsors help us to engage the community in meaningful arts experiences through curated programming choices and allow us to take a leadership role in our community’s cultural development, by ensuring that we remain healthy, sustainable and dynamic.

The Burlington Performing Arts Centre is a not-for-profit charitable organization. Box Office revenues cover less than 25% of our annual operating budget. BPAC relies on the generosity and support of our sponsors to deliver outstanding programming, while keeping ticket prices affordable. In turn, we help our Sponsors to reach hundreds of thousands of potential clients and customers with customized sponsorship opportunities.

For more information on donating and/or corporate sponsorship, please contact Tammy Fox, Executive Director.
