The cat is out of the bag! This year’s Norman Arts Council fundraiser is one: BAL CHAT NOIR! Join us as we revel in the café, cabaret, and artistic life that defined early 20th Century Paris.

Whether this is your first ONE event, or you spend every year battling the after-the-holiday blues by anxiously awaiting THE party of the year, you will not be disappointed by your attendance of this night!!

Held from 7 to 11 p.m. on Saturday, March 24 at MAINSITE Contemporary Art, 122 E. Main, it's a night you don't want to miss. 

The Chat Noir was a café, shadow theatre, dance hall, publishing house, and gathering spot for writers, poets, artists, and anyone wanting to mingle with the like. For one night, step into MAINSITE and you will experience the Belle Epoque.

Enjoy drinks, food, art raffle + auction items, live entertainment, music and much, much more, all while supporting Norman Arts!
