Come one, come all to witness the Thimblerig Circus at the Martin Lipscomb Performing Arts Center on Saturday, Feb. 12, at 7:30 p.m. Thimblerig is a fancy name for the cup and ball routine. It’s a magic trick disguised as a game of skill.  This comedy team is made up of the last three surviving members of the famous Moldavian circus of the same name.

Having traveled from Moldavia to The Americas, Thimblerig is excited to share with the Americans everything there is to know about Moldavian tradition, particularly traditions involving juggling, fire-eating, and putting nails where nails shouldn’t go.


Elementary school-aged children and their families are invited to the Arts Council's free ARTSaturday arts and crafts workshop, on Saturday February 12, at 10:00 a.m., in the Macon County Public Library children's wing.

The Council provides all materials and instruction for make-and-take projects including Valentine collage cards, and hearts and beads jewelry. ARTSaturday always features live music by keyboardist Lionel Caynon, and coloring projects.


CULLOWHEE – The 440th Army Band will perform at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 16, in the Fine and Performing Arts Center at Western Carolina University.

The concert is free, with tickets available at the FAPAC box office on a first-come, first-served basis leading up to the show and on the night of the performance. Tickets are limited to four per person, and the performance is recommended for the entire family.
