Visit Downtown JC

We have a proud foundation for a Uniquely American Experience.

Our greatest asset is our People.

We Love Where We Live and want you to feel it, too.

Complimenting the downtown experience is a walk in historic Heritage Park.

Join us as we host, and partner with, numerous events in downtown JC.

Enjoy community worship services, concerts, parades, festivals, and much more.

Cinderella at the ball

C.L. Hoover Opera House is our home for arts and music. The Opera House presents top-class performances across a range of artistic genres. The Opera House Fine Arts Academy includes ASTRA (After School Theater Repertory Actors) designed for middle school aged kids, ACT One (Actors Creating Theater in one act) designed for 3rd thru 5th grade, and private lessons for art and theater. Junction City Little Theater, JC Art Council, and our community band are located in the Opera House.  Live entertainment, family friendly shows, and great music can be appreciated by everyone.
