Welcome to The Emerson Center! We operate this facility with a dedicated group of Volunteers from the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Vero Beach. Our mission comes from the poet and philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson’s belief that life requires “the never-ending task of self-improvement.” With our upgraded sound system and facility layout, The Emerson Center provides an intimate view of the stage from any seat. We provide a premier venue to host a variety of lectures, entertainment, films and special events to the Treasure Coast. With a grant awarded by the Florida Humanities Council, we present a free speakers’ series exploring our state’s history, culture, and contemporary issues. We are proud to be this area’s home for “Live from Vero Beach!” offering an outstanding array of musical entertainment including favorite rock headliners, extraordinary songwriters and performers, as well as top tribute bands. This year, we again partner with the Space Coast Symphony for two exceptional performances sure to entertain the whole family. Throughout the year, we add special events, including comedy, films and lectures addressing today’s issues. Tickets to all Emerson Center events sell out early, so be sure to reserve your seats now for our upcoming season!
