Mission


The Public Arts and Music Committee

Under the umbrella of Eustis Main Street, was formed in September of 2000. It is comprised of individuals with a common mission to create and support public arts and music venues in Eustis. We have promoted Public Arts and Music for over 8 years, as an integral factor in the cultural and economic foundation of this community. We believe the arts contribute not only to an enhanced quality of life, but also to higher educational levels, cultural tourism, employment of a viable workforce and creating higher values for property and business. All are Encouraged to join us in our creative endeavors– interested volunteers are welcome!
