The Ives’ lush oasis of natural beauty on Danbury’s west side, hosts world-renowned artists in a wide variety of music and theater genres. The venue pays tribute to its storied roots in classical music while acknowledging the ongoing evolution of the art of live performance. With entertainment that ranges from enlightening to awe-inspiring, the Ives reflects the diverse multicultural community in which it resides; embracing the unique attributes that the artists and patrons bring to the site. A common love of the arts and the beauty of nature bring fans to the grounds. Shared experiences at the Ives create the fabric of our community.
The Ives is proud to work together creatively with many artists and community stakeholders such as the Western Connecticut State University Art Department, the Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut and the Brookfield Craft Center to develop the Juried Fine Art & Crafts Show and to envision and inspire cultural enrichment for the entire family.
