We're in the middle of planning a virtual Holiday Concert for your enjoyment. While we can't invite all of you in to experience it in person, we do invite you to Save the Date.
Details will be announced in November.
In normal years, the Holiday Concert is an important fundraising event for the Oxford Community Arts Center, and one of our key funders, the Ohio Arts Council. We hope you'll consider donating to us online during the event.
July 2021 2nd Friday.
Join us on July 9th for an outdoor garden party and concert! At 6:30 pm, we'll kick the event off with yard games (cornhole, badminton and more!), popcorn, and cotton candy. Then, at 7:30 pm, The Mackey Brothers will perform in our Outdoor Pavilion.
The Mackey Brothers Band plays hard-rockin' blues in the style of the great guitar “gunslingers” of the 60s and 70s. Brothers Tom and Dave fell in love with the sounds of The Beatles, Cream, Jimi Hendrix, and The Allman Brothers while jamming in their basement in Oxford Ohio. Separated when Tom moved to the San Francisco Bay Area, the Mackey Brothers reunite in 2021 to rock out righteously!
