The Palms Playhouse originated in an old South Davis barn in the late 1970s for theater though soon evolved into a superb live music venue. Regardless of dust or drafts, the old barn was regarded as ideal for acoustics and atmosphere. After 27 years in the old barn, The Palms Playhouse relocated in 2002 to the 19th-century Winters Opera House, nestled in the heart of downtown Winters. In 2016, longtime Palms owner Dave Fleming retired, and Winters locals Andrew Fridae and Nora Cary took the reins.


The Palms Playhouse is located in downtown Winters. This is a 41-minute drive from downtown Sacramento, and a one-and-a-half-hour drive from downtown San Francisco.

    My husband and I were both raised in Winters and we now live and raise our daughters in Winters as well. This town has our memories, our friends and family and we knew it was where we had to be married. We decided on a very simple and quick wedding with only about a month to prepare. We were so excited when we were able to book the Palms Playhouse. It is a landmark of Winters with all of its history and beauty. Nora and Andrew have done a fantastic job keeping such a wonderful piece of Winters alive and helping us create a day to remember. They were extremely professional, accommodating, friendly, helpful (and so reasonably priced)! We were extremely happy and satisfied with our choice in venue and grateful for all of their help!
