The Memorial Auditorium and Convention Center (MACC) has a proud history of supporting the visual and performing arts. The City of Pittsburg promoted the renovation of an antiquated Masonic Hall. A multi-million dollar renovation ensued leaving a concert quality auditorium, art gallery and 27,500 square feet meeting and reception facility. MACC isorganizationally contained within, but is an autonomous division of the City’s Department of Parks and Recreation.

The Memorial Auditorium and Convention Center is the cultural, performance and entertainment-meeting place within the Pittsburg area. Considering the diverse cultures in and around Pittsburg, in 2003 MACC’s Advisory Board developed a Section of Cultural and Performing Arts to accommodate the increased demand for these services. Following consultation with the Pittsburg Community Theatre (PCT) and Pittsburg State University (PSU), the Memorial Auditorium and Convention Center elevated participation as a partner in providing visual and performing arts programming to the primary promoter and provider for the Pittsburg area community.

MACC is a community center in the true sense of the word. MACC serves the general public by providing an attractive, state of the art venue for the performing arts as well as a pleasant place to have private gatherings, fundraisers, meetings, small conventions, etc. Since the renovation was completed in 1984, almost 1.8 million people have attended functions at the MACC. Management strives to maintain the integrity of the building, enhance the physical appearance and public offerings of the institution and provide the utmost in customer service.
