Presenter Description:

Lincoln City Cultural Center was first known as The Lincoln City Arts Forum when established on August 10, 1992. It was renamed the "4C's" (Coastal Communities Cultural Center), and received its Articles of Incorporation on December 20, 1996. The organization obtained Non-Profit altStatus as IRS 501(c)3  on October 14, 1997.

Six months later, in April of 1998, its first By-Laws were established and later revised in 2003. In September 2006, the 4C's leased DeLake School from the city of Lincoln City; and adopted its new business name of Lincoln City Cultural Center in February 2007.

Since 1929, historic DeLake School has been a center for education for the children of Lincoln City. LCCC continues this tradition for ALL ages, offering classes in art, dance, music, literature, and theater.  The Lincoln City Cultural Center also sponsors play writing contests, fund raisers, and activities to encourage artists of all ages. 

The Mission  of the Lincoln City Cultural Center is to enrich our community through art and cultural events in the historic Delake School. Our vision is to have the Lincoln City Cultural Center support community economic development by promoting a successful center for the visual and performance arts. 

Along Oregon's central coast, Lincoln City Cultural Center invites all ages through its doors, with offerings of creative classes, activities, exhibits and events that are designed to enrich the life of our Lincoln City community and to celebrate the artist in each of us.

Come join us as we present a center for learning, with gallery exhibitions, dance and musical performances, poetry readings, film festivals, and other entertainment for all members of the family. Members support the Cultural Center by participation in art events and classes, payment of membership dues and volunteering their time and resources.

  • LCCC Presents: Jamie Stillway and Ben Bonham

    October 25th, 2017 to October 25th, 2017

    Jamie Stillway and Ben Bonham are setting out on their "mostly annual" fall tour, and will be stopping in Lincoln City for a performance at the Lincoln City Cultural Center on Wednesday, October 25th. Their eponymous debut release snagged serious accolades from all corners, and was named one of the top albums of the year by Willamette Week. "Stillway and Bonham cut through the clatter of pop music with a package that’s part Django Reinhardt and part Rev. Gary Davis, tied up with a ragtime bow. Jamie Stillway not only comps big, fat, swinging and expensive jazz chords but picks with a ferocity that would make Django proud, and her technique is commanding and artful. Ben Bonham devilishly evokes front-porch picking sessions and Hawaiian luaus with his liquid strokes but can cop a nasty swing on demand--both guitarists are supremely accomplished” --Don Campbell, The Oregonian.
