Our Story is Our Community.
Located just 5 blocks from Ocala’s Historic Downtown Square in picturesque Tuscawilla Park, the Reilly Arts Center is Ocala’s home for the arts and live entertainment. Featuring state-of-the-art acoustics and production equipment, the 705-seat venue hosts an eclectic assortment of events, concerts, meetings, and parties and has become a hub for the arts in Ocala.
The Reilly opened in October of 2015 after a $3.4 million renovation to the City Auditorium – a WPA project that was completed on July 4, 1940. Over the decades the auditorium hosted countless Ocala proms, graduations, concerts and events from the Boston Pops to good ol’ southern wrastlin’.
In addition to being the home of the Ocala Symphony Orchestra and producing local, regional and national acts, as the new flagship center for arts and culture in Ocala, the Reilly is committed to being an active and accessible venue in our community.
The construction is now complete, but we love looking back to see the way our community partnered to bring The Reilly back to life. The video below showcases the fundraising project and why we needed to give The Reilly Arts Center a resurgence.
