staff heart


It’s that most wonderful time of year again! We hope to see you for our Twelfth Annual Holiday Bash. Please join us as some of our favorite artists and bands perform a mix of holiday and original music. We’ll be showing off some improvements we’ve made to our space, spreading holiday spirit with reckless abandon, and offering a buffet of finger-food (and more holiday spirit) as the music winds down.

For all of us at Rapunzel’s, it just doesn’t feel like Christmas until the music kicks off…come celebrate twelve years of live music in Lovingston at our Twelfth Annual Holiday Bash!

Rapz 12th Xmas 2013

Our annual fundraising event features some of our favorite bands performing three songs each–some holiday music, some original music, and some that’s entirely different.  This events showcases the best of the local talent we’ve hosted over the course of the year, and proceeds benefit Rapunzel’s Further Ado Foundation.

Happy Holidays to you and yours!


We’d like to take a moment to remind you, that all of the events (music, dance, theater, art) that happen at Rapunzel’s are presented by Rapunzel’s Further Ado Foundation. As a tax-exempt, nonprofit organization, Further Ado’s mission is to continue providing our community with the best performances and the best community space we can possibly create–and to keep these events available to our community at an affordable price.

This is a major fundraiser for Rapunzel’s Further Ado Foundation, and the proceeds from this event pay our music licensing fees and help offset the cost of putting on performances every weekend. Thank you for all of your support and friendship.

In order to do this job, we need your help. We are desperately in need of financial support. There is little to no grant funding available for the arts these days, and the bills keep going up. And so we turn to you, our community, for any help you may be able to offer.

Our annual Holiday Party is coming up on Saturday, December 21st. The money we raise at this event goes toward paying for the music license and other licensing fees associated with running an arts venue, but that’s just one small portion of the expenses associated with putting on performances Fridays and Saturdays, year-round. (The heat bill alone is staggering.)

Your presence is the most valuable thing you can give us…more than anything else, we want to see our couches full of smiling faces. Yet we know full well how hard it is to go out after a long day at work, or on the farm, or with the kids. If you can’t be here in person, making a donation is a great way to be here in spirit and guarantee that we’ll be here the next time you feel like a night out.

You may donate online or come see us in person. If you have any questions, please contact us!
