The Coachella Valley Improv/Comedy Festival is a 3-day event consisting of:

– Friday night reception honoring luminaries for their contribution to the art form

– Saturday and Sunday daytime workshops

– Afternoon and evening performances

.

The Coachella Valley Improv/Comedy Festival was created to help fulfill the mission statement of the Indio Performing Arts Center, a 501c3 non-profit public benefit organization.

Our  aims and objectives are to provide everyone in the Coachella  Valley  and beyond  with an equal opportunity to appreciate the  experience and  cultural diversity  that live theatre  provides.

 We  believe that the arts are the fulfillment of  human aspirations and shall  therefore provide a variety of affordable  entertainment events to all audiences  which will encourage community  participation and stimulate educational  programs.
