Community Ofrenda (Memorial) at Butler Square

Community Ofrenda (Memorial) at Butler Square

Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is celebrated in central and southern Mexico at the beginning of November. While this coincides with the Catholic holiday, All Soul's & All Saint’s Day, indigenous people combined this with their ancient belief of honoring their deceased loved ones.  It is believed that the gates of heaven are opened at midnight on October 31, and the spirits of all angelitos (children) are allowed to reunite with their families for 24 hours. Then, the spirits of the adults come down to enjoy the festivities prepared for them.

This is celebrated by the building of ofrendas (alters), and community festivities that celebrate the time the living can share with the dead.  The tradition of the ofrenda is to create a mainstay to greet the spirits when they arrive with candies, toys, tamales, chocolates, breads, candles, fruit, mole, mezcal, as well as photos, fashion magazines, cigars or folk art skeletons... and every ofrenda has pan de muerto and sugar skulls!


OFRENDA DOWNTOWN | Thursday October 31, 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM | Butler Square
We welcome the community to add items to the ofrenda in celebration of the lives of family members that have passed.  We will provide items to add to the alter, and everyone is welcome to bring items of their own.

The Barber of Seville


Screen Shot 2018-06-14 at 12.53.50 PM.png

Set in Alta California in the 1830s, we have retained all of Rossini’s buoyant good humor and added a fresh twist for audiences of all ages.

Rosina is new in town. Fresh from México, she lives with her controlling, suspicious Uncle Bartolo, who is planning to marry her off to one of his rich, elderly friends. But Rosina is in love with the handsome chavo she saw in the plaza. She knows he likes her too, but they have a problem…she speaks only Spanish,
and he speaks only English! Enter the brilliant, bilingual vivales, Figaro! Porque a veces, ¡hasta el lenguaje del amor necesita traducción!

Enjoyed by audiences of all ages. Each year, Portland Opera To Go travels throughout Oregon and SW Washington schools and community venues with a full-staged 50 minute, English-language adaptation of a famous opera.

The Newberg Historical Society

The Newberg Historical Society Program

Hosted by the Newberg Historical Society, this monthly talk takes place every last Tuesday of the month at the Chehalem Cultural Center. 

On June 26 the Newberg Area Historical Society will welcome Julie Anderson to speak at their monthly meeting.  Julie will be speaking on the topic “William Hobson: the Man Who Brought Quakerism to Newberg.”  Hobson settled permanently in The Chehalem Valley in 1876 and was influential in starting the Quaker congregation now known as Newberg Friends Church.  Julie will speak about his growing up years, his pioneer days in Iowa and his time in Newberg, with an emphasis on his work as a Quaker minister and his influence in Newberg from the late 1870s to the early 1890s, including his involvement with Friends Pacific Academy (George Fox University).

Julie Anderson has lived in Newberg since 1992.  She is a graduate of George Fox University.  Julie and her husband, Carl, are the parents of two teenage daughters. She works part time at Camp Tilikum as a Guest Host in the retreat center and has written devotionals and adult Bible study material for Barclay Press. Over the past several years she has developed an interest in Friends (Quaker) history, which has lead to spending considerable time in the George Fox University Quaker Room and Archives perusing old books and microfilm.

The Newberg Area Historical Society welcomes the public to their meetings which are held in the Chehalem Cultural Center.  Speakers begin at 7pm and the business meeting begins at 6:30pm.

# 5: Stumptown Swing

Grand Ballroom

Stumptown Swing takes audiences back to 1920's Paris, when gypsies with guitars, violins and upright basses made the leap from French musette to American "hot jazz" and kept Parisians dancing to this evocative new sound.  Tim Connell (mandolin) and Mike Burdette (guitar) of Rio Con Brio formed the group after nearly a decade of playing swing gigs with Portland's best acoustic musicians. They snapped up the hottest upright bass player in town, Keith Brush (Stolen Sweets, Pete Krebs Trio, Blue Cranes) and are proud to feature their long-time friend and collaborator, the absolutely pyrotechnic violinist, Ben Blechman.
Stumptown Swing performs a set of hot, cool and sultry classics, featuring swinging groove and gorgeous acoustic instruments played with intelligence and passion by four masters of their craft.

Doors open at 6:30pm, music starts at 7pm.  Swing Dance instructors will provide a lesson during intermission, then everyone is welcome to dance for the second half of the concert! 

Tickets $20 for adults, $10 for kids.

$5 Arts For All Tickets available at door (show EBT/Oregon Trail Card to qualify)

Young Washington Book Signing with Peter Stark

Young Washington Book Signing with Peter Stark

YOUNG WASHINGTON: HOW WILDERNESS & WAR FORGED AMERIA'S FOUNDING FATHER
Presented by Peter Stark


Free and open to the public
Wednesday, June 6, 2018
6:00 PM – 7:30PM
Chehalem Cultural Center 415 E Sheridan St. Newberg, OR 97132
Wine by Argyle Winery and books for sale by Chapters Books

"Young Washington, written by the best-selling author of Astoria, is a vivid and groundbreaking portrait of a young, struggling George Washington that casts a new light on his character and the history of American independence.


Two decades before he led America to independence, George Washington was a flailing young soldier serving the British Empire in the vast wilderness of the Ohio Valley. Naive and self-absorbed, the twenty-two-year-old officer accidentally ignited the French and Indian War—a conflict that opened colonists to the possibility of an American Revolution.

With powerful narrative drive and vivid writing, Young Washington recounts the wilderness trials, controversial battles, and emotional entanglements that transformed Washington from a temperamental striver into a mature leader. Enduring terrifying summer storms and subzero winters imparted resilience and self-reliance, helping prepare him for what he would one day face at Valley Forge. Leading the Virginia troops into battle taught him to set aside his own relentless ambitions and stand in solidarity with those who looked to him for leadership. Negotiating military strategy with British and colonial allies honed his diplomatic skills. And thwarted in his obsessive, youthful love for one woman, he grew to cultivate deeper, enduring relationships.

By weaving together Washington’s harrowing wilderness adventures and a broader historical context, Young Washington offers new insights into the dramatic years that shaped the man who shaped a nation.
Peter Stark is an adventure and exploration writer and historian. Born in Wisconsin, he studied English and anthropology at Dartmouth College, took a master’s in journalism from the University of Wisconsin, and headed off to the remote spots of the world writing magazine articles and books. With a home base in Missoula, Montana, he and his family periodically have lived abroad for a year, most recently in a small town in Northeast Brazil. A long-time correspondent for Outside magazine, Stark’s articles and essays have also appeared in Smithsonian, The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, Men’s Journal, and many others."

Herbert Hoover's Oregon Boyhood: Years of Growth

Herbert Hoover came to Newberg, Oregon in November 1885 from West Branch, Iowa as an orphaned 11-year old. When he left from Salem in 1891 to join the first class at Stanford University, he was a self-confident 17-year old aspiring to become a mining engineer. He achieved even more in his roles as an outstanding engineer, a great humanitarian, a president during the Great Depression, and an elder statesman. The influence of Hoover’s Oregon years has only recently been understood through new biographical interpretation.

This is an original exhibit created by the Hoover-Minthorn House Museum and the NSCDA-OR for the Chehalem Cultural Center.

#3: Jayanthi Raman presents DUALITY: an Indian Classical Dance Production

Ballroom

Join us in welcoming Jaynathi Raman's dance company as they tour Oregon with DUALITY: An Immigrant Experience, an Indian classicaldance ballet production that was presented with Creative Heights grant from OCF in April 2017 at the Newmark Theater with full house and rave reviews.

DUALITY: Follows the story of a woman who moves from her hometown in India to Portland, OR and the hardships, challenges she faces in her life and how she overcomes them with support of her friends in her new hometown and finds success and happiness. Story of hope and celebration of immigrant life in US.


The classical dance Bharatha Natyam originates from 2nd century in India and has been handed down through generations of practitioners and teachers as an oral tradition although there are books on the dance codifying the grammar and technique saved from ancient palm leaf manuscripts.  This hour length performance presented by the company dancers, many of whom are immigrants who have moved from India to make Portland their home and some who are second generation dancers who continue the tradition of dancing, supported by their families to preserve and propagate their heritage and cultural roots. Choreographer, danseuse Jayanthi Raman provides narration in English so audience can follow the story.

Jayanthi Raman’s impressive multi-faceted career spans over four decades – as an award winning nationally recognized traditional Indian dance performer, choreographer, master artist – educator, speaker, author, presenter, promoter, producer, and an arts advocate.

Raman is founder and teacher of the premier institution of Indian dance -NATYA Dance Academy, based in Portland, OR, training aspiring students. The dance company and academy enhance cultural diversity by bringing Indian classical dance of highest quality through performances and outreach events influencing the cultural scene.

“Few dancers communicate effectively across the wide gulfs of cultural difference. Jayanthi Raman is one. Even a viewer conditioned by American culture can recognize what sets Raman’s dancing apart. Technique, expressiveness, acting ability, musicality – just as in a ballet.” – The Oregonian

Doors open at 6:30pm, show starts at 7pm. One hour performance with intermission

Tickets are $10 for adults, free for kids/teens under 18!  Please reserve youth tickets even though they are free!

Jane Doe in Wonderland

Jane Doe in Wonderland

Jane Doe in Wonderland

FB Event Newberg.png

The Chehalem Cultural Center is excited to host Jane Doe In Wonderland:

PREVIEW on Wednesday March 28th |
*this will be a dress rehearsal that is open to the public
tickets $8, free to educators and youth under 18 (please still reserve free ticket online)
Doors at 6:30pm
Performance begins at 7:00pm

Thursday March 29th |
tickets $15, free to educators and youth under 18 (please still reserve free ticket online)
Doors at 6:30pm
Performance begins at 7:00pm

TICKETS CAN BE PURCHASED AT THE DOOR OR RESERVED IN ADVANCE at www.janedoeinwonderland.com

ABOUT THE PLAY:

Jane Doe in Wonderland is an original play and survivor talk-back raising awareness and education on domestic sex trafficking, written through the collaboration of anti-sex trafficking nonprofit Game Over, founded by Survivor/Educator Elle Snow, and Playwrights Grace Booth, Kate Tobie, and Erin Johnston. Based on multiple sex trafficking survivors’ testimonials and Elle's educational training, Jane Doe draws parallels between Alice In Wonderland and how young women and men are lured into the world of sex trafficking—a world that exists in all communities throughout America. After a successful first tour in Humboldt County, CA in the spring of 2017, Jane Doe prepares for a tour of Northern California and Southern Oregon in March and April 2018.

Jane Doe is written to be accessible for a high school audience, presenting material in a manner that is neither violent nor explicit . Jane Doe follows the most common case of trafficking: that of a ‘Romeo Pimp’ targeting a rural high school girl by pretending to be her boyfriend before bringing her to an unfamiliar city and trafficking her. In addition to addressing the common ‘red flags’ of this type of trafficker, the play specifically addresses the most commonly asked question: “why don’t victims run?” When people understand the tactics a trafficker employs, their conception of ‘prostitution’ is turned upside-down. When teenagers understand what a ‘pimp’ is, their likelihood of being trafficked drastically diminishes. Our hope is that by raising awareness amongst and educating this demographic, educators and concerned citizens, we can prevent any more of our youth from becoming victims.
