Looking  Back, Lookiing Forward

Reflecting on the 10 seasons of the DeKalb Outdoor Theater, our Board is so proud of the quality entertainment that we bring to our county. We still hear first time visitors marvel at the facility and its surroundings. This would not be possible without the partnership with the DeKalb County Fair Association and of course, the hard work and dedication of the Board of Directors. Five individuals have been board or committee members from the beginning - over a dozen years ago. We are busily preparing for the future and are dedicated to our continued success.

By Kent

See you at the theater!!!
