The Palms Playhouse is a
cultural oasis for folk, rock, alt. country, blues, Americana, jazz and
whatever else suits our fancy. This is our 30th year of hosting national
touring bands, regional stars, and just plain great music in an intimate
setting where you are never far from the stage. The atmosphere is casual.
The bar serves beer, wine, sodas, coffee, tea, pretzels and cracker jacks.
Come join us for a great night of live music in Winters
The Palms Playhouse was born in an old South Davis barn in the late 70's as
a playhouse for local thespians but soon evolved into a cultural oasis for
some of the finest live music heard anywhere. The old barn was rickety
and full of dust. The winter winds blew through the wooden slats and
the summer heat sizzled. It didn't matter. Palms' fans,
listeners and musicians alike, swore those wooden slats were magical
sounding boards creating top-notch, one-of-a-kind acoustics.
2002, after 27 years in the "Old Barn," the Palms Playhouse
was forced to find a new home . While the old barn can never be
replaced, the new venue in the 19th century Opera
House in Winters continues to offer the same off-beat intimacy that The
Palms was known for and an eclectic setting for some of the world's
finest performers and musicians.
Nuts and Bolts
The Palms is located in
Winters Opera House in downtown Winters,
California about 75 minutes east of San
Francisco, 40 minutes west of Downtown Sacramento
and about 15 minutes west of Davis. It seats 220,
with first-come-first-served seating and has a dance floor, bar, and unlike
the "Old Barn," large
modern restrooms, along with heating and air conditioning.
Advance Ticket Purchase is recommended but
tickets are available at the door if the show isn't sold out.
