Have a ball at Blue Yule! Enjoy food, drinks, music and fellowship with the holiday season’s coolest celebration. Shop for fabulous ornaments handcrafted by local and nationally recognized artists, bid on silent auction items, and dance your britches off to the festive tunes of Denton’s finest bluegrass band, Boxcar Bandits. All proceeds benefit 2015 Artistic Programming.

Nineteen years ago, the late, great arts patron Nancy Hanley had the brilliant idea to cajole artists to create ornaments from the wacky to the sublime and sell them at a big party to benefit the MAC, naming it after the color of the year-old arts space on McKinney Avenue. It was hard to say no. “Two decades later, the Blue Yule is still the best way to kick-off the holiday season, with amazing ornaments, dancing, witty conversation, food and drinks, including our legendary Blue Mystery Punch” noted Susan Matusewicz, MAC board president and co-chair of the event with Sally Francis. There is also a silent auction, with all proceeds supporting one of the city’s most important art and theater venues.

A wide variety of uniquely handcrafted ornaments donated by artists will be for sale. Ranging in size and price, there is a piece to fit everyone’s tree and budget.

Ornament donors will receive a complimentary Artist Level membership to The MAC.
Drop off dates for the ornaments are December 1-2 from 11am-6pm and December 3-4 from 11am-9pm.
For artists with questions regarding the donation of ornaments, contact The MAC at 214.953.1212 or
