Holiday Open House

JOIN US SATURDAY, DECEMBER 18 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.!


Each December, the community is invited to join us at the World Food Prize Hall of Laureates for our Holiday Open House. Come and hear holiday music and experience the spectacular acoustics in this beloved historic building. 

Past performances have included live seasonal Christmas music by the Grace Church Ensemble, as well as the opportunity to experience the beautiful art and architecture within the Hall of Laureates. The open house combines these two elements to bring us together around an important theme at this time of year: to unite us all in the spirit of alleviating hunger, still experienced by so many in the world. 

Please share this invitation with all of your friends, colleagues, family members, and other community members and encourage them to join us. It is a wonderful opportunity to experience our beautiful building during this special time of year.

There is no admission charge, but we encourage guests to bring a donation for Food Bank of Iowa. Most needed items include canned meat and fish, canned fruit and vegetables, canned soup, pasta sauce, breakfast items (including cereal), 100% fruit juice, and personal and paper products (such as soap, toothpaste, and toilet paper).  

Out of an abundance of caution, guests will be required to wear masks while in the Hall of Laureates, and the number of people in the building at one time will be limited to make social distancing possible.
