28 years ago the Bigfork Center for the Performing Arts opened its doors for the first time. The old theatre, which had housed summer stock productions since 1960, was deemed unsafe. Recognizing the pivotal role theatre had played in the village, indeed the Flathead Valley, local folks established a non-profit foundation in 1984 enabling them to raise funds for the new structure. Thus the Bigfork Center for the Performing Arts Foundation came into existence. Since that time the Center and its foundation have been managed by a volunteer board of directors who are dedicated to the promotion and preservation of this iconic Bigfork facility.
