Mardi Gras Ball & Silent Auction

Save the Date for February 23rd, 2019

Each year, Ruston Community Theatre, Dixie Center for the Arts, and NCLAC coordinate to host a Mardi Gras Ball.  Funds raised at this event go toward maintenance of the historic Dixie Theatre, which houses all three organizations.  Come support the arts and celebrate Mardi Gras with food, live music, and the NCLAC Silent Auction!


The Silent Auction is a NCLAC event that takes place during the Mardi Gras Ball.  The purchases made at this event support NCLAC programming.  Private donations of all kinds are sold at the auction and in the past have included art, jewelry, cookware, and sports memorabilia, just to name a few.
