About : Blue Ridge Theater & Event Center

Who We Are

Continuing the great tradition of bringing family-friendly entertainment to the High Country. Formerly the Blue Ridge Dinner theater, the venue came under new management in August of 2018. The new owner, Steve Mochen, has been working tirelessly to make a great venue location even better. Check back for new performers and some major events that will be hosted by the Blue Ridge Theater & Event Center.

We are not a Dinner Theater any more, but we do offer refreshment concessions and local vendors such as Taste of Chicago providing great food at many of our events.

Event Center Venue Available

The Blue Ridge Theater & Event Center is available for rental. What a great space to host your family reunion, bridal reception, or even your company’s annual dinner! Whatever the occasion, we have the space and the ability to cater. Give us a call at 336-982-4888 for more details.
