About The Swartz Creek Fine Arts Association

Beginning the third Tuesday of June every summer, we bring great local talent to the Fred Pajtas theater in Swartz Creek, Michigan for enjoyment of families of all ages! Find a seat in the sun or under one of our shade trees and enjoy the fresh summer air and a great night of live music.

Parking is free and bathroom facilities are available in the Swartz Creek Public Library.

History

The Swartz Creek Fine Arts Association, Inc. is a 501(c) (3) Federal non-profit corporation formed in October 1984. The purpose of our organization is to provide free musical entertainment and appreciation to the general public. The Fred and Phyllis Pajtas Theater, an outdoor amphitheater, was construction in the fall of 1984 using donated funds received from the community and the Pajtas family.

The site of the theater is leased from the City of Swartz Creek on a ten year basis. The theater was design, by Douglas Stephen, of Hull Stephens & Associates, for the best acoustics for outdoor musical events and the site will seat approximately 3,000 in lawn chairs.

Our first concert season was held June thru August, l985. Hundreds of professional musicians have appeared during the annual season of free to the public programming, and thousands of people have attend these series. The Board attempts to present all types of music, from Opera to Country, dance events, large concert orchestras and choirs.

The operations of the organization are overseen by an elected volunteer seven member board of directors. Officers are elected at the annual meeting held in July of each year.
