Upcoming Events



Due to Franklin county’s COVID-19 transmission status recently changing to “substantial,” the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have recommended that residents return to wearing masks indoors regardless of vaccination status. As such, all CAPA staff and volunteers will wear masks inside our venues, and we recommend that all patrons, regardless of vaccination status, wear masks as well.
