Safety First is Our Highest Priority
As DPAC looks forward to reopening, the health and safety of our Community is our highest priority. Things may look different at DPAC when we reopen for events. To protect Guests, Staff, Vendors and Visiting Shows, we are doing a lot of little things that will make a big difference.
