Exclusive Raffle: Choose Your Own Adventure!
Our exclusive Summer 2017 raffle gives you three adventurous choices! Experience the Old World charm of Havana, Cuba – or indulge your senses in the vineyards of Sonoma County, California – or hunt for truffles under the Tuscan sun in Cortona, Italy. 

Cotuit Center for the Arts is an award-winning, dynamic arts and cultural center that provides free and paid programming including art exhibits, theatre productions, musical events, educational programs, and numerous other events throughout the year. The Center collaborates with Cape Cod artists, musicians, actors, teachers and volunteers to provide a rich experience to over 30,000 attendees each year.

The Center’s ticket sales and other earned income, such as class tuitions, facility rentals and concessions, generate less than half of the operating expenses of the Center. In order to make up the shortfall, the Center relies on donations and fundraising events.

Entertainment Tonight! is our premium fundraising event of the year. Join us!  Do It. At Cotuit!
