The Clark Center for the Performing Arts will be hosting a free Holiday Open House on December 19, 2013 from 5:30pm – 7:30pm.

Join the Clark Center for our free Holiday Open House. It’s the perfect opportunity to visit with friends, snack on Christmas Cookies and view the spectacular lobby Holiday Display!

Every year, local businesses sponsor a Christmas Tree or Wreath to help us decorate the lobby for the holidays. From November 22 – December 20, raffle tickets will be available for purchase before the shows and during intermission. Ticket buyers can then deposit the tickets in the box of the tree/wreath of their choice. Raffle tickets are also available by coming to the Clark Center during Box Office Hours (M-F Noon-6pm & Sat Noon-4pm).

The winning tickets will be drawn on Friday, December 20. Winners need not be present and will receive all merchandise on the trees as well as the tree itself. (Trees can be donated back to the Clark Center). Trees will be able to be picked up on 12/21 from 12 pm – 4 pm or 12/23 from 9 am – 12 pm or after the Holidays.

Our 2013 Tree/Wreath Sponsors include The Credit Bureau, Dwell Design, George Jane Roach, Kelrik Productions, Madelyn’s Apparel, McDonald’s of SLO, Arroyo Grande & Morro Bay, Nan’s Pre-Owned Books, California Fresh Market, Rabobank, Stolly’s on the Alley, SwissJust, Thomas Kinkade Showcase by the Sea & Youth Arts Academy of the Central Coast.

The entries from our first annual Gingerbread House Competition will also be on display. Contestants will compete in three different levels for cash prizes and the winners will be chosen at the Open House! Christmas cookies and spiced apple cider will be served.
