Music, Arts & Culture

Sedalia has music, arts, and culture for everyone to enjoy. Sedalia is more than you know.


Music is essential for our well-being. Sedalia hosts the Scott Joplin International Festival every June to celebrate ragtime music. If that is not enough to quench your thirst, we also have additional sources of live music that will keep your toes tapping year-round. Learn more about the Sedalia Symphony, Sedalia Chorale, and what's shaking at the State Fair Community College.


For performing arts, two venues make for twice the fun. Either the Liberty Center or the Stauffacher Theater should scratch your performing arts itch. Both offer live events that are assured to delight.

If it is true that art mimics life, expand your life by checking out visual art throughout Sedalia. The Daum Museum of Contemporary Art is on the State Fair Community College campus. The Liberty Center is downtown, and NoBro Art Events coordinates functions for your pleasure. Check them all out!
