What We Do for Florence’s Events Center:
FACE the Challenge!

Simply put, we support local nonprofit performing groups so they can use the Florence Events Center. We also support capital improvements and sustaining maintenance for this wonderful venue and fine arts center.

We represent the shared interests of local nonprofit groups that love to use the 455-seat state-of-the-art theater—or the nearly 8000 square feet of dividable “flat floor” space—for their events, but have a hard time raising the funds to do so.

FACE Produces and Hosts Major Events

That’s why we produce and host major events ourselves—to raise the money necessary to make performance grants to these many other local groups. We make grants of up to $750 so other local nonprofit groups can afford the fine arts center’s rental fees. This enables them to conduct fundraisers, advance their group, entertain the public, and keep this amazing facility in use.

Touring Music and Dance Events

If you enjoy nationally- and internationally-touring music, dance, drama, and other theatrical events, you’ve come to the right venue! We love hosting them right here in Florence. This means you don’t have to drive overnight to a bigger venue and pay up to three times the ticket price! We host concerts and shows of various types, educational events, and more to bring Arts, Culture & Entertainment to the Central Oregon Coast.

Contribute to Tourism in Florence

We also host events that draw tourism dollars to Florence and volunteer to support the FEC’s own self-produced events. In addition, Florence bills itself as Oregon’s Coastal Playground for many reasons. To support that, we provide top-notch Arts, Culture & Entertainment in a first-rate venue and support the FEC in hosting conventions, tradeshows, weddings, fundraising dinners for local nonprofits, executive retreats, and more.

If you or your group are interested in renting all or part of this amazing 21,000 square foot facility for groups of four to 400, click the button below or call the Florence Events Center at 541-997-1994.

Entertaining Events for Kids

Even students benefit from enriching educational and entertaining events through Florence Arts, Culture & Entertainment. That’s because FACE does an annual Kiwanis Kids Concert in conjunction with our annual Winter Music Festival that brings nearly 1000 kindergarten to grade 5-aged kids and their chaperones into this fabulous events center to experience a full theatrical musical experience.

Host the FEC Public Art Gallery

Did you know that the Florence Events Center also has a public art gallery? As part of FACE’s development of this center, we host an ever-changing art exhibit in Studios 1 and 5 of the Florence Events Center making it a high-profile stop on the monthly tour of Florence galleries and exhibits.

If you would like to join us, we would love to have you.
