WELCOME TO THE JAFFREY CIVIC CENTER – 501(c)3
The Jaffrey Civic Center is a designated 501(c)3 non-profit cultural facility which first opened its doors in April 1966. It was funded and built by Jaffrey native and teacher, Marion Mack Johnson, a dedicated public servant, who wanted to make sure that all residents in the Monadnock region had access to cultural events. The mission of the Jaffrey Civic Center is to provide and sustain a public venue where citizens, residents and visitors of the Monadnock region can pursue artistic, educational and civic activities. The Center’s goal is to contribute to the cultural enrichment and enlightenment of the community. There is no admission fee to the Civic Center and all of our art shows and receptions are FREE and open to the public.

Our art studio is open and free to artists of all media-persuasion Wednesday and Thursday mornings from 10 AM to Noon. Feel free to bring your still life set-up, your reference photos, a friend to model, your paints, pastels, easels, #2 Ticonderogas, camera, crayons, and your ideas to share with fellow artists. The Civic Center follows the Conant school system calendar, so if they are closed, we are as well. No reservations are required but if you do come, as a courtesy, please check in with the main office so we know you are here.
