Welcome to the official website of UCPAC – the Union County Performing Arts Center!
UCPAC is a 501(c)3 nonprofit historic theatre in Rahway, NJ offering comedy, concerts, and more.
Built in 1928, the historic Union County Performing Arts Center (UCPAC) is rich in history and culture. Our timeless theater may have tremendous historical significance, but it also makes a huge impact today as a live music concert venue, classic film palace, comedy venue, and so much more. Everything we do here at the UCPAC is meant to foster a sense of creativity and pride in the great City of Rahway, Union County, and beyond. Other offerings include:
- Sensory-Friendly Theatre Performances
- Black History Month & Pride Month Events
Whether you grew up coming here or are seeing a show at UCPAC for the first time, we can’t wait to welcome you.
Our Café Bar offers snacks, water, soda, beer, wine, and On The Rocks cocktails for you to enjoy during the show.
