COVID-19 Policy

In accordance with the changes in guidelines from Erie County, New York State, and the CDC, masks and proof of vaccination are no longer required for performances and events at the African American Cultural Center, effective September 15th, 2022. We still strongly encourage all patrons to continue to wear masks at all times while in the venue. Masks will be provided upon request, free of charge.

We will continue to implement the following at all events at the African American Cultural Center:

  • Enhanced cleaning and sanitization of all public areas by custodial staff on duty during and between performances.

  • Touchless ticket purchasing for patron admission.

  • Touchless hand sanitizing stations.

  • Monitoring during performances to ensure compliance with safety protocols.

As an added safety measure, and to limit physical contact between guests and employees, cash is not currently being accepted for in-house ticket sales or concessions. Please be prepared to purchase tickets online or use PayPal and Cash App for in-house ticket purchases and concessions. Please contact the theatre for special arrangements.
