This year’s gala theme of “Harrington Under the Big Top” will transport you back to 1903, the year the Harrington School was built & the Golden Age of the circus. The evening will be filled with jaw-dropping performances, culinary delights, & one-of-a-kind auctions items. It will be an evening to remember at The Greatest Gala on Earth as we raise funds to renovate the historic Harrington School & the addition of the Studio Theater which will be northern Utah County’s hub for arts education, performance & professional development.

In total, Harrington Center for the Arts directly supported 840 local artists, and over 16,000 members of our community enjoyed our live events.
