The Community Arts Center has been described as one of the "crown jewels" of Fairfield's Village Green. The 40,000-square-foot Center houses a 250-seat theater, an arts and crafts studio, dance and fitness studio, children's room, senior lounge, classroom, a multipurpose community/banquet room with a balcony overlooking Village Green Park, and an art gallery. A dramatic two-story, daylit galleria / lobby welcomes patrons.

"We worked with the entire community to design this one of a kind facility," said Parks and Recreation Director James Bell. "There is literally something for everyone."
