Building Closed
The Moss Arts Center is closed to the public until further notice. However, our staff is still available to address any issues and answer any questions you might have.

We appreciate your patience as we work to process refunds for canceled events. We will refund tickets at the point of purchase:

  • Patrons who purchased online receive automatic refunds to the card used for purchase.
  • Patrons who purchased over the phone or in person will be contacted to arrange a refund prior to the date of the canceled event.
  • If you are expecting a refund, but have not yet been contacted, we may not have a current phone number on file for you. Please update your phone number here.


Consider turning the value of your ticket purchase into a donation. By choosing to donate your tickets, you help sustain our ability to bring our community together through the arts. Please contact the box office by email or by phone at 540-231-5300 to make this request.

We understand the disappointment these closures and cancellations cause, and we wish we could continue our work to bring the community together, particularly during times like these when the arts can offer such healing power. Thank you for all of the support you have shown the Moss Arts Center. We appreciate you.

We will be announcing our 2020-2021 season in June, and are looking forward to sharing a whole new season of diverse voices, fresh perspectives, and community celebration with you.


UPDATE MARCH 12, 2020:

In the interest of the health and welfare of our patrons, staff, and performers, we are canceling all performances and events at the Moss Arts Center through April 30, 2020.

We will continue to monitor the situation as it evolves to determine how to proceed for events currently scheduled for May and June.

This decision is in line with public health guidelines regarding COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus), as well as appropriate procedures determined by Virginia Tech’s COVID-19 Committee. We also feel that this is the best course of action for our community.

The Moss Arts Center plays an essential role in bringing community members together, but at this time and under these challenging circumstances, the potential risk is too great.

The box office is currently working to process refunds for canceled performances. Ticket holders for these performances will be notified directly and refunds will be provided. If you have questions or need assistance, please contact our box office team at 540-231-5300.

While it’s disappointing to cancel these upcoming events, we look forward to coming together again as a community when the time is right. We will provide updates about the status of events planned after April 30 on our website.

Virginia Tech has established a dedicated website that provides updates and resources. We encourage you to refer to that site for ongoing information.

The Moss Arts Center’s building, box office, and galleries will remain open during regular business hours.
