About Us

A premier event facility

Since 1971, the Dalhousie Arts Centre has been a key feature in Nova Scotia’s  arts and culture landscape. The Dalhousie Arts Centre is home to the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium, which regularly features performances by local talent as well as world-famous national and international entertainers.

The centrally-located Arts Centre also offers venues for meetings, seminars, trade shows, weddings, and a variety of other events.

Dalhousie University is located in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq. We are all Treaty people.


The Dalhousie Arts Centre Box Office will be officially closed to the public as of 6pm on March 18, 2020 until further notice. You can purchase tickets on-line anytime under the "BUY TICKETS" tab. 

If you have tickets to a non-Symphony NS show that has been cancelled or cannot attend a show that has been rescheduled and require a refund, please email cohntix@dal.ca or call 902-494-6406 to leave a message. A skeleton crew will continue to work remotely, and will get back to you about your refund, but it may take some time.

If you have tickets to a Symphony NS show that has been cancelled, please email info@symphonyns.ca or call 902-421-1300 to leave a message. Again, Symphony NS staff are working remotely and may take quite some time to respond, but they will do so.

Thank you for your patience, and we look forward to seeing you sometime in the future.
