EMPTY BOWLS EVENT
Tickets are $35 pre-sale and $40 at the door.
As the event date gets closer, check back for information about where you can purchase tickets.
How it Works
Due to alloted space at the venue, a set number of tickets are available. Tickets will be sold prior to the event, and attendees are encouraged to secure their admission in this way. The number of tickets available the day of the event will be solely dependent on the number of tickets distributed through pre-event sales.
Tickets will be torn at the door.
Soups, breads, drinks and desserts from local restaurants will be available throughout the event. Disposable bowls and utensils will be provided at each booth.
Guests will select their favorite bowl from the handmade pottery selection. Your ticket bowls stub MUST be presented in exchange for a bowl. Bowls will be replenished throughout the event, so a great selection will always be available.
Pottery bowls will not be used for tastings.
Gallery pieces will be on display and available for purchase.
The People's Choice Award will be awarded for the favorite soup, based on cash donations from event attendees.
Following the event proudly display and use the souvenir bowl as a reminder of those who suffer from hunger or struggle to feed their family.
Proceeds from Empty Bowls will benefit the Wichita Falls Area Food Bank in its Mission of "Uniting our communities to fight hunger with food, education and advocacy."
We hope you'll consider joining us in this fight against hunger by partnering as a sponsor, artist, or guest for this distinctive event. Each dollar raised for the Food Bank will provide 3.4 meals for people in need right here in our community. Together we can make sure fewer bowls go empty in our community.
Due to limited parking at the museum, we strongly encourage attendees to park in the eastern-most lot of Sikes Senter Mall (JC Penney side nearest to Maplewood). Trolley services will be continuous from 11:00 AM throughtout the event and will provide curbside delivery to the museum's entrance.
In complying with this request, we appreciate your respect of traffic and parking needs of businesses who are located adjacent to the museum
