Renting JPAC

The Jefferson Performing Arts Center is the only world-class event venue of its kind in Jefferson Parish.

With a seating capacity of 1,041 and modern Altman light and PSX sound systems, JPAC boasts state-of-the-art accommodations for a wide variety of performances and events from concerts, grand receptions, and large-scale productions to intimate gatherings and corporate meetings. 

JPAC is centrally located in Metairie, Louisiana, adjacent to downtown New Orleans.

Reserving Dates

As the operators of the Jefferson Performing Arts Center, Jefferson Parish has contracted ASM Global for venue management and exclusive rights to stage events at JPAC. Based on calendar availability and the viability of proposed events, JPAC makes open dates available for rental by the public.

Our event calendar is busy and competition for open dates is very high. While we would like to host every event possible at JPAC, we apologize that we cannot accommodate all requests. Priority for open dates is given to in-house events presented by JPAC, its promoter partners and the Center’s artist-in-residence, the Jefferson Performing Arts Society, which requires as many as over 200 dates per year.


No date is guaranteed or should be considered firm until a signed contract is executed along with payment of all applicable deposits.


For events where tickets will be sold to the general public, clients and promoter must provide proof of a successful track record presenting events in theaters or other venues of 1,000 seats or more.
