    COVID-19 INFO

    Update 4/1/2020, 5:00pm: 

    All Abbey Arts venues will remain closed to public gatherings through the month of April. We will be updating all reschedules or online status of concerts, events, and classes in the coming days. We hope to be back bringing you connected arts experiences at our venues soon, but in the meantime: make art, exercise, meditate, get outside (with distance of course), remain calm and please take all the recommended precautions this month.  

    Stay tuned for Abbey Arts online experiences as early as next week!

    Please also consider supporting local artists and nonprofits in this time of need, as you are able. We ask that our ticket buyers consider their tickets still valid for future reschedules and not to request refunds at this time if possible.  Lots of artists will be livestreaming shows soon, and we hope to share more of those on our Instagram and Facebook pages in the coming days. 

    If you would like to further support the future of Abbey Arts and our work to keep music/community accessible to all, you can donate here

    We are incredibly grateful for our community, staff and volunteers. Thank you and stay safe!  

    Sincerely,

    Team Abbey – Juliann, Nathan, Ashley, Brent, Sara, Dave, Taryn, Jacqui & everyone…

    RESCHEDULING

    **RESCHEDULING**

    HATCH III is uniquely designed to be an intimate and interactive dance event uniting the community. Due to our artists being unable to fully participate, and a decision made with the well-being of our choreographers, dancers, and audience in-mind – our March 13th show will be postponed to a later date when all involved can take-part in the experience fully.

    All tickets will be honored at the rescheduled date. We know this isn’t a fun time – but hold onto your tickets and we’ll be announcing the new date soon.

    We look forward to seeing you all in the near future!

    For more information please visit www.fremontabbey.org

    From Caitlin:
     
    “I’m sorry to announce that we’re having to postpone my upcoming show at Ballard Homestead on 3/28. The good news is I’m 6 months pregnant. The bad news is I was just given doctor’s orders to not fly from now until the end of my pregnancy, which makes it impossible for me to play these west coast shows.I hate to cancel any show, but I need to follow my doctor’s orders. I will reschedule, but do not have a confirmed date to share yet. I am so sorry for the inconvenience this causes you, and I appreciate your understanding”
     
    All tickets will be honored at the rescheduled date. We know this isn’t a fun time – but hold onto your tickets and we’ll be announcing the new date soon.
