arts & entertainment

Downing crawfish to the music of a live Zydeco band, hip-hop dancing at a nightclub, watching a local stage play, attending the concert of a hometown boy turned country superstar - this is a typical Saturday.

Beaumont has plenty of nightlife hot-spots as well as a number of performing arts & theatrical groups worthy of any Broadway production. Visit area art galleries & museums to see masterpieces of American and European paintings, sculpture, photography and decorative arts share space with regional and folk art. Take in a show at one of our movie theaters or venture to nearby casinos in Louisiana for some gaming action.
