Autumn at the BCAC

The season is changing, and so are the upcoming events at the Basin City Arts Center. Before we get in the new scheduling, I should remind you that we have some continuing favorite events.

Bingo at the BCAC--the second Thursday of every month...October's Bingo Day is the 13th.
Zumba continues, both in the mornings and evenings. If you are looking for a way to add some fun activity, Zumba could be for you!

We have some wonderful choices if you need something to do as the daylight disappears. On October 22, Wyoming performers Davis and Maverick will play the BCAC. These gentlemen are returning favorites, so be sure to check out their performance. Also, in the works is a three-day spooky movie to help the grown-ups get ready for Halloween. More to come on the title, but there will be three showings from October 27-29 at 7.00 PM. Come and join us for a little Halloween fun.

In November, the BCAC will be hosting its first annual Arts and Crafts Bazaar from 9.00 AM to 4.00 PM. All you crafty people take note: we'd love to have you take a table in our second floor ballroom. Also in November is Miss V, a favorite at the Arts Center.

We currently have the ballroom with a functional kitchen available for your events. The BCAC recently had Hal Cannon and Theresa Jordan perform with refreshments prior to the entertainment provided and hosted by Security State Bank. We would love to provide a beautiful location for your event, so please keep us in mind.

The Basin City Arts Center Board wishes you a wonderful fall season! We hope to see YOU at the BCAC!
