Entertainment & Fine Arts

Within one brief decade, the George Daily Auditorium (1800 North 3rd Street, Oskaloosa) has become unquestionably favored among audiences, performers, and agents alike. Running a full season of professional programming, their 695-seat, state-of-the-art facility comes alive with superior entertainment. This uniquely intimate venue features top-quality productions generally reserved for larger cities without the hassle of big city traffic and crowds.

Continually enrapturing audiences from all walks of life, the auditorium’s single-floor facility and affordable ticket prices make the arts accessible to all. In addition to exceptional shows, they serve as a community and educational facility featuring a multitude of area events and children’s theatre programs. The building is complete with a large meeting room, black-box theatre, and small kitchen to accommodate any needs.


The Fine Arts & Cultural Events (FACE) of Mahaska County began in 2003 under the name of Oskaloosa Arts Fellowship. Excited art enthusiasts had the idea to spread the arts to the Mahaska Community. The idea was successful. Visit FACE on line to see their activities, educational opportunities, and calendar. The Oskaloosa Art Center & Studio opened in the spring of 2017.
