          Like live theatre and music?  We have 4 live theatre companies right downtown, as well as the historic State Theatre's concert series. Miller Auditorium on the Western Michigan University campus brings Broadway shows and other headline acts, and WMU's nationally-recognized fine arts department presents quality theatre and music programs all year long.  The biennial Gilmore Arts Festival brings the world's best pianists to the area for over 100 concerts in the Spring, and Arcadia Creek Festival Place right downtown is home to major music and food festivals nearly every weekend all Summer long!
