About the Ticket Supplier: Ames Center

The Ames Center, formerly the Burnsville Performing Arts Center is dedicated to: Fostering the growth, development and appreciation of the performing arts through the presentation of the broadest possible range of cultural, entertainment and artistic activities and events; providing a home to the community’s major performing arts groups; serving as a community center for the visual arts, business and educational meetings and presentations and providing economic stimulus for the benefit of the residents of Burnsville and the surrounding region.

This mission statement, as developed by VenuWorks, suggests that the Ames Center, in order to contribute to the creation of a vital, active downtown area, must host a broad spectrum of events including local arts, regional cultural organizations, popular concerts, family shows, business meetings, social gatherings and lectures and more.

From the City of Burnsville 2030 Comprehensive Plan:
“Art and culture are increasingly recognized as integral and necessary components of our social fabric, contributing to the economy and quality of life in cities and communities. In our increasingly mobile and diverse society, investments in culture and creativity are essential to building vibrant, competitive and sustainable communities for the twenty first century.”
