Discover new things in the New Year!
We’re wrapping up the first month of a brand new year, and there are a lot of exciting changes at the Santa Maria Valley Discovery Museum!
Our first big event is Sunday, Jan. 27, Nat Fast Day: We’ll open our doors with free admission for all and celebrate art in honor of local artist Nat Fast. With special guests—including Garcia Dance Studio and local children’s band Birdie—it’s sure to be a great day for the whole family.
We’re buzzing with excitement about our other special events this year. We’ll be host to a Mad Hatter Tea this March with MooLaLa Boutique as a presenting sponsor. In June, it’s time to celebrate the rodeo with Rodeo Roundup. This year’s event will be bigger than ever before with food, activities, and fun—just like the Santa Maria Elks Rodeo!
Mighty Machines was such a hit this past December that we’re bringing it back this September, and Noon Year’s Eve is returning due to popular demand as well.
There’s more in the works, but you’ll have to keep up with us on the website, smvdiscoverymuseum.org, or on Facebook so you can be the first to know about the fun special events, new exhibits (coming soon!), and the latest happenings with our ongoing weekly programs.
At the museum, we love to dream big. Discover. Explore. Grow. 2013 is going to be a great year and we invite you to be part of it all!
