Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts (THELMA) is a premier venue providing the community with unprecedented access to arts and entertainment, and a unique destination for weddings and corporate gatherings. Named for a woman with a classic style and an affinity for her community, this vital amenity is the cornerstone of the Arts and Entertainment District in downtown Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. 

A former Masonic Temple renovated and expanded in 2013 includes a new two-level art gallery that gives a nod to an exciting future and is the perfect backdrop for high-profile art exhibits. THELMA is an impressive feature in the heart of the city’s downtown with majestic pillars, a grand staircase, and the perfect blend of the historic and the modern. You will want to visit again and again whether it’s relaxing on the spacious outdoor plaza, watching a film, listening to an intimate concert in The Great Hall or attending a major concert in the street. 

Hours: Contemporary Wing and Lower Level open Mon-Fri 10 am to 5 pm and Saturday, 11 -3 and during some events. Always check the THELMA website or social media accounts for closures due to private events.

Fees: No admission and open to the public.
