Performing Arts & Other Event Facility Studies


In 2018, HVS Convention, Sports & Entertainment Facilities prepared a report to assess the feasibility of developing a state-of-the-art performing arts center in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. The Performing Arts Center Market and Feasibility Study was completed in September 2018. The effort was facilitated by CDA 2030 and funded by ignite cda. The envisioned performing arts center could provide a performing arts venue for various community uses, including cultural performances, educational programs, civic events, and private rentals. In addition, the proposed performing arts center could enhance the demand potential of touring concerts and theatrical productions in Coeur d’Alene. This study assesses the feasibility of a proposed performing arts center based on whether it will: 1) satisfy the venue needs of the local arts community; 2) generate a sustainable financial operation;, and 3) create new and positive economic impact.


Following completion of the report, a Blue Ribbon Panel was brought together in October 2018.  The goal was to review the market and feasibility study, provide additional clarification, and discuss related efforts.  A summary of the Blue Ribbon Panel Review is now available along with the Performing Arts Center Market and Feasibility Study, other event facility studies and resources.  The overarching goal was to have a comprehensive set of studies and related resources in one location for future use by any organization, thus allowing the community to receive a greater value from the investment into these facility studies.
