The "Lex" is the new Lexington Auditorium and Civic Center, a renovation of the Municipal Auditorium in downtown Lexington. The Municipal Auditorium once served as our community center, with live theatre, dances, fairs and youth activities. Sadly, the building has been closed since 2009 due to a lack of handicap accessibility and outdated utilities.

Imagine bringing back all that the Municipal Auditorium once was – and more. The Lex will be a modern-day gathering place for the community, as well as a destination for professional entertainment, conferences and other events.

The Lex will bring more to our city:
  • More Entertainment 
  • More Youth Activities 
  • More Commerce and Economic Development 
  • More Memories 
  • More Fun!
Our Mission: To enhance the quality of life, civic pride and economic growth in Lexington and the region. We are a not-for-profit corporation committed to providing cultural, social, educational and youth activities through the preservation and operation of our historic auditorium.
