The Appalachia Cultural Arts Council, Inc. founded The Appalachia Cultural Arts Center as a vehicle to foster commitment to the future, to economic development, and to the cultural pride of the Town of Appalachia, the surrounding communities, and their residents. The purpose of the center is to revitalize the souls and spirits of a community and her people through the use of the arts and humanities. The Appalachia Cultural Arts Center is located in the former "M.D. Collier Furniture Store" on Main Street in historic downtown Appalachia, Virginia. Adjacent to the Appalachia Cultural Arts Center is an amphitheater for outdoor performances. The Center produces a variety of theatrical productions throughout the year, through the community theater group, The A.C.A.C. Players.
