The Florence Events Center

  • City of Florence Oregon Official Website

    Florence -- the one spot on the Oregon Coast that boasts a rare combination of scenery, cuisine and culture. And the Florence Events Center is in the middle of it all.  This 21,000 square foot facility annually hosts events ranging from ballet to blues and everything in between. The Events Center is home to the Last Resort Players theatre company and the Seacoast Entertainment Association's annual concert series. FEC also hosts three outstanding annual events: the Florence Festival of Books in September; the Celebrate Arts juried art show in November; and the Winter Folk Festival in January. We are also affiliated with the Oregon Coast Council for the Arts (OCCA.)
