On November 14, 2017, the Aurora City Council approved a lease with the Fox Valley Music Foundation for the property located at 19-21 S. Broadway in downtown Aurora, a building which once housed Woolworth’s, but has been vacant for several years. In addition, we have signed a redevelopment agreement with the City, which includes a grant to cover part of the cost of the rehabilitation of the building.

Our dream for this site, which is located adjacent to Mundy Park on the east side of Broadway between Downer and Galena, is to create a vibrant community gathering center, providing a wide array of arts-based experiences for our members and guests. Once the build-out is complete, you’ll be able to enjoy a 250-seat performance venue, a retail space featuring local musicians, a research library and archive, and an art gallery/museum space.

We are immensely grateful to the City for its support of our dream, and for helping us get to this point in our history. While we are excited about our future prospects, we are realistic enough to understand that we will need additional significant financial support from members of the Fox Valley community to fully execute our plans. For this reason, we ask you to make a personal commitment now – at whatever level you can – to help us keep the forward momentum going!


Thank you!
