The Gallo Center for the Arts’ third annual Valley’s Got Talent contest will be presented on Friday and Saturday, August 24 and 25. Both performances begin at 7 pm. The shows will have 25 acts, comprised of 118 performers, for the Center’s live stage variation on popular television shows such as "America’s Got Talent" and "American Idol."

At the conclusion of the Friday show, the audience will vote on their favorite performers from the different performance categories. A panel of judges will select the winners at the conclusion of the Saturday performance. The audience vote will be the equivalent of one judge’s vote in determining the winners.
