People make our community the kind of place we want to live and all it takes is a little effort from everyone to achieve something great. If you would like to get involved in fun projects that make the City a better place to live, play and work, how about volunteering some time to help with events and activities?

Our monthly meeting is open to the public, even those who do not reside within City limits. We recognize that the City of New Port Richey is not only important to the residents, but also has become the downtown for many who live in unincorporated NPR and surrounding communities as well. We extend an invitation to anyone wishing to help make this City a hub of cultural activity and appreciate all those willing to give their time and energy to that end.
If you are interested in joining the committee, we recommend you attend at least one meeting prior to applying to meet the other members and learn a bit about our current projects.
Meetings are held 5:30 p.m. the third Monday of each month at the Recreation & Aquatics Center Board Room.

The Cultural Affairs Committee is not a not for profit organization, however we are allowed to accept donations for specific events or activities. The committee is one of the few in the City that receives a small annual budget of $4,000–with that, we work to make the largest impact that we can to benefit you.
With the addition of donations and sponsorships from the public, the committee is able to provide more fun and interactive activities for you and your family, like free movies in the park. Together we can create an environment within our City that provides creative and fun cultural activities and experiences for our residents and surrounding communities.
Check with your tax advisor, donations and sponsorships may be tax deductible.
