Yadkin Arts Council and Cultural Center

YAC was founded in 1975 to promote the arts in Yadkin County. On Sept. 18th, 2010 the Yadkin Cultural Arts Center's phase I building opened to the public, providing classrooms, a cafe, art gallery, & more!

The vision of the board President, John Willingham, was to create a community gathering place, for all members of the community, a place to partake in and enjoy the arts. In December, 2012, the second phase of the building -- a 193-seat performing arts theater- opened to the public.

The theater schedule for 2013 is ambitious and varied. Performances in music, dance, and drama are already scheduled through June. Ticket prices are modest -- from $5 to $35 with more performances priced at $16 so that all members of the community can enjoy the theater.

Some of the offerings are:
Old Timey Radio Show
Kruger Brothers
David Holt and Will McIntyre
Jim Lauderdale
Smoke on the Mountain
Cle Thompson in Concert
Ron Rudkin Jazz Ensemble
and more!

...and movies on Saturday afternoons.

The Center currently provides an exhibition gallery, classrooms, a cafe with FREE WiFi, outdoor performance stage, stroll way and fountains, plaza, and YARD - artist studios and the Willingham Theater encompassing 10,000 sq. ft. and 193 seats.
