In the interest of the welfare of our guests, staff, and volunteers, the Academy Center of the Arts and the Lynchburg Daily Bread have made the decision to remove food and beverage service from the 2020 Empty Bowls event. This decision is in line with public health guidelines regarding COVID-19, recommendations by state and local health authorities, and made with your health and safety in mind.
EMPTY BOWLS 2020
Empty Bowls 2020 will take place on Saturday, August 29, 2020, from 10:30am – 1:30PM in the Warehouse Theatre, 519 Commerce St. While the decision has been made to remove food and beverage service from this event, guests will still be able to pick out their favorite bowl(s) and engage with Lynchburg Daily Bread staff and volunteers.
Guests may also choose to purchase additional bowls and vases while on-site, as inventory allows.
Early Bird ticket holders may line up starting at 10:30am for an 11am – 12:00pm bowl pick up time.
General admission ticket holders may line up starting at 12:00pm for a 12:30pm – 1:30pm bowl pick up time.
Hosting this event, rather than canceling it outright, allows our community to support the Lynchburg Daily Bread in a time of need by donating the value of your tickets back to their organization. We are facing uncertain times as our community grapples with the impact of COVID-19 and organizations like the Daily Bread need the support of our community now more than ever.
For additional questions, please call our Box Office, open 9AM – 5PM Monday through Friday, by phone at (434) 846-8499.
Early Bird Tickets: $30.00
General Admission Tickets: $20.00
Please note that purchasing a ticket to this event includes one (1) bowl or soup mug. Food and beverage service will no longer take place at this event in 2020.
