The Music Hall at Gateway City Arts is now Race Street Live!
Race Street Live is a live music and event space located at 114 Race Street at Gateway City Arts in downtown Holyoke. Situated on the historic Second Level Canal, our building was once the longtime home of the Judd Paper Company.
Race Street Live reopened in August 2021 in partnership with DSP Shows, one of the leading independent concert promoters in the country, and Gateway City Arts, a venue for events, entertainment, dining, art-making, teaching, and learning in the heart of Holyoke’s Arts and Innovation District. The 2022 name change reflects the new management’s commitment to presenting world class live music and events in the Pioneer Valley.
The versatile venue has a capacity up to 499 for standing shows, and can accommodate 250 for seated events. With a state-of-the art sound & lighting system, incredible sightlines, a full bar, and beer garden, Race Street Live is the premier live music club in Western Massachusetts. Located within the Gateway City Arts complex, great food options are available next door at the Famous Café and Judd’s Restaurant.
