To make the Redding Civic Auditorium a sustainable business for presenting entertainment that inspires our community and facilitates events that make Redding a great place to live.


The Redding Civic Auditorium (previously known as the Redding Convention Center or Redding Civic Center) is located near downtown Redding in a protected open space, surrounded by the beautiful Sacramento River, the Turtle Bay Exploration Park, and the magnificent Sundial Bridge.

The city of Redding, in the county of Shasta, is located at the northern tip of the Central Valley, 160 miles north of Sacramento, with Interstate 5 running through the heart of Redding and Shasta County. Free, paved and lighted parking is available for over 700 vehicles. For additional information on Redding, visit the official City of Redding tourism website at visitredding.org.

capacity and layout

Our venue accommodates over 2,000 people in plush, cushioned seats. The downstairs area, which consists of orchestra and dress circle, contains 1200 seats. The balconies, which seat people on both the sides and the rear of the theater, have a seating capacity of 822. 

When the facility is hosting conventions, trade shows, and exhibit shows, the seats are removed on the main floor and the balcony sections are raised, allowing the entire area to be used for display space, exhibits or banquets. 


For security reasons, event door times are strictly enforced and restrooms inside the facility do not become available until the advertised door times. The staff of the Redding Civic Auditorium asks that you kindly take this into consideration when planning your arrival time.
