Ponte Vedra Beach - The Cultural Center

904-280-0614

Our History

Founded in 1994 by a dedicated group of community leaders, the Cultural Center provides a place for everyone in the Jacksonville region to create, understand and experience the arts. Located in the former Ponte Vedra Beach post office, the Cultural Center building is a 8,000 square foot community meeting place for people who enjoy the arts as participants and observers.

A 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, the Cultural Center features an ongoing series of quality arts programs, exciting events and art exhibitions with opening receptions that are free for our community.

We invite you to visit the Cultural Center during our hours of operation for a tour of our facility. We'd love to extend a personal invitation to join our growing number of community leaders who understand the importance of the arts.
