About your Quick Center Visit

The Quick Center for the Arts serves as a cultural hub of activity for Fairfield University and the greater Fairfield community. Each year, over 45,000 audience members attend over 200 events.

The staff of the Quick Center are eager to make sure you have the best experience possible while you are with us. Please keep the following items in mind when planning your time with us:


The Quick Center offers an array of beverages and treats prior to our events. Come early to a show and enjoy wine, beer, soft drinks, a coffee bar, and snacks. In addition, we offer Einstein Bros Bagels and breakfast goodies prior to our The Met: Live in HD events. Concessions will be open one hour prior to events and during most intermissions. Unless otherwise indicated the night of a performance, no food or drink is allowed in the theatres or gallery.

Please note that generally our concessions area accepts cash only.
