ABOUT US

history

​​The Noblesville Cultural Arts Commission is proud to be home to the longest running Shakespeare in the Park Production in central Indiana and the second longest in the state! Our Sunday Band Concerts in the Park have been a Noblesville tradition since 1998. As the arts culture in Noblesville has evolved, we have evolved with it. Noblesville has a new Arts District Designation and NCAC plays a vital role.

The Noblesville Cultural Arts Commission was created by Mayor Mary Sue Rowland in September of 1992. Under the direction of Jane Campbell, the commission, then called the “Minister of Culture”, organized the first event in May of 1993. Law Day was a program that used theater to teach children about the courtroom process through fairytales. July of 1993 saw the first Shakespeare in the Park production - A Midsummer Night’s Dream.  That first year also saw poetry readings, art displays, and band concerts in Seminary Park. For nearly a decade, the commission sponsored the Summer Art Fair on the Square.
