Help us support the arts in Henderson County.

 There are three easy ways YOU can support The Center For Art & Entertainment! 


The show must go on in Hendersonville...

With the current COVID-19 crisis, every donation counts.



More than a logo on our website or an ad in the program, a partnership with The Center is a cooperative advertising/marketing plan for YOUR business.  In addition to an available complimentary VIP ticket block for you, your employees or clients can receive discounts on all show and event tickets. Your logo will be showcased on our Main Street Window Billboard in Downtown Hendersonville, and your company will appear in our weekly email newsletter to our patrons.  Your sponsorship will be customized to your business and much more. Call us today!


The Shows Will Go On in Downtown Hendersonville!

A Message from Our Founder


"I have always envisioned a place where the arts can be housed in one building that would cater to the creative impulses of a community.  In launching The Center for Arts & Entertainment, I found a building -125 S. Main Street in Hendersonville - that not only anchors the end of a bustling downtown but a community that is expanding to welcome a diverse population seeking the finer things of life and its diversions.  Whether retirees or growing families, the population of Hendersonville is on the verge of explosion.

Access to fine arts and professional cultural events on multiple levels offers our community the opportunity to attract a populace that supports a growing economy and positive growth as well as enhances our position in Western North Carolina. The Center is in a unique position as our only agenda is "community" and we are not simply a gallery or a playhouse or a bookstore or a coffee shop or a brewery or a concert hall.  We are creating the "anchor" to the arts and cultural activities where a diverse array of local talents can showcase their specialties, as well as offer marketing, exhibit, fundraising, and meeting opportunities to Henderson County residents and tourists.

Performing Arts Centers nationwide are not supported by ticket sales and grants alone.  They are underwritten by financial patrons, sponsors, and donations from all parts of our community. $5, $10 and $20 donations are the foundation of support that keeps the Center open and the Arts alive in downtown Hendersonville. 

Thank you for making The Center possible!
