Legends Gala

Legends Gala 2022

On Friday, September 16, 2022 the Granada Theatre will host its sixth annual Legends Gala honoring local legends who, through lifetime achievement, have illuminated and advanced the performing arts in a significant way.

Our 2022 honorees are Palmer and Joan Jackson—philanthropists, State Street Ballet—presenting organization, and Allen Sides—artistic virtuoso.

After a two-year hiatus, the elegant black-tie banquet returns to the stage of the historic Granada Theatre overlooking the sumptuous auditorium. The program for the evening includes live entertainment, a gourmet three-course dinner featuring local fare, wines and signature cocktails, and the “Legends Awards” to celebrate and pay tribute to the distinguished honorees.
