Our city offers a rich tapestry of artistic experiences, including world-class venues, galleries, live music, and public art, for art lovers of all kinds and families.
World-Class Venues & Public Art
Pompano Beach boasts four prominent arts and culture venues that warmly welcome everyone.
The Pompano Beach Amphitheater, or The Amp, brings in world-class musical acts from various genres. Here, you can immerse yourself in everything from rock and roll to rap within the comfort of a fully-covered, open-air 3,000-seat venue.
The Bailey Contemporary Arts Center (BaCA) is sprawling with the work of visual artists, and nearby, the Ali Cultural Arts Center celebrates the arts and culture of the local African-American community with its spoken word, storytelling, and theater. The Pompano Beach Cultural Center is just across the street and is known for hosting theatrical performances and music.
If you're a fan of art and want to enjoy it at any time, take the opportunity to explore the wealth of public art throughout Pompano Beach. You'll find stunning marine murals adorning the beach garage and underneath the Atlantic Boulevard bridge, colorful pompano fish sculptures scattered around the city, and inviting benches with beautiful mosaics.
