For 34 years, Horsin’ Around has been THE event to enjoy an afternoon with friends in support of the arts! The live and silent auctions provide a great venue to make an investment in a piece of art that you’ll be proud to have in your collection. Plan a getaway with friends to places like Belcampo in Belize, Dubai, Colorado Springs, the Napa Valley Film Festival, or to visit the Christmas Markets via a cruise on the Danube. Pick up some restaurant gift certificates, a spa day, or a round of golf! Visit the Arts on Douglas “POP UP Gallery” for buy-now items, to browse the collection, and learn about their art consulting services.

Riverside Catering has prepared a fantastic menu, and you’ll be amazed as you enter the Brannon Community Center with surprises all available for auction or purchase.

Horsin’ Around raises 15% of Atlantic Center’s operating budget, allowing us to provide arts-related programming to underserved youth, opportunities for working artists to create new work through our acclaimed residency programs, and educational lectures and performances for the greater Central Florida community, serving 55,000 yearly.

Bring your friends and reserve your table. Don’t miss the fun!
