About The District

Where culture and entertainment are life!

The Mitte Cultural District was the vision of the Roy F. & Joann Cole Mitte Foundation when they provided funding for the Dean Porter Park restoration in 1998. They recognized that the area surrounding Dean Porter Park was home to most of the City’s cultural organizations and by designating this area a “Cultural District,” it would provide the impetus to promote and enhance historical, cultural, educational and family activities.
