Conveniently located in the heart of Concord’s historic downtown in Todos Santos Plaza, the Concord Visitor Center is open and ready to welcome guests.
In collaboration with the Concord Arts Association, Concord Historical Society, East Bay Regional Parks and Mt. Diablo State Park, the Visitor Center offers visual displays, printed materials and merchandise throughout the facility.
Visitor Center features:
The Concord Historical Society provided the Center with a complete series of historic photographs that illustrate Concord’s growth and development over the years. The collection fills up an entire wall with a visual depiction of the city’s unique history from mid-1800s through modern times. Our collaboration with CHS has also led to the new audio version of their historical walking tour (available now,) plus a brand-new walking tour map coming soon.
Visit Concord’s fun, larger-than-life wall art map of Concord hangs above our meeting space.
Concord Art Association Wall
The Concord Art Association works their magic to present a new gallery wall of unique pieces created by local artists every quarter. The group also provides an assortment of exclusive postcards and other artist goods for purchase.
Mt. Diablo / Save Mount Diablo
Mt. Diablo is a primary draw and destination for visitors to the area and Visit Concord offers photos, maps, books, art, brochures and other information.

Brochure & Magazine Wall
A variety of brochures and magazines for local and regional attractions are available on our “Brochure Wall” and display rack.
Multiple TV monitors are featured throughout the Center for high-impact, visual displays -- three in front, one in back, plus the interactive Hootboard.

The back room the building features a large conference table set up, used by the Visit Concord team for staff, business and board meetings. The space will be available to outside groups for use as well.
Just outside the large window wall in the center’s meeting area, is a tranquil, tree-shaded garden area that allows a bit of nature to infiltrate the office space. Home Depot in Concord sponsored the recent transformation project by contributing a large, lush collection of plants and flowers, while BSM Landscape of Concord created the beautiful garden space. A new garden wall mural is also currently in the works, courtesy of our friends at the Concord Art Association.
