What is the Winterville Center?

The Winterville Center for Community and Culture is a regional enrichment center that serves adults of all ages. Our purpose is to promote the social, cultural, mental and physical well being of the adult citizens of Winterville and the surrounding communities.  Daytime and evening classes and activities abound. We socialize, exercise, create art, play games, dance, and we eat together.  

Visit our unique honor system Coffee House on Tuesdays from 8:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. Then, on the first Thursday of every month, we have a "First Thursday Potluck Luncheon & Lecture" with special guest speakers, entertainment or a demonstration.  

Our Winterville Arts Council curates the art gallery throughout the Center.  See works of art by masters, novices, and even by students of the Winterville Elementary School. They include all kinds of art media including, but not limited to paints, chalk, pencils, pottery, poetry, wood, and so much more. Don't miss the Art Council's quarterly art receptions.
