We sadly announce that The Buster Keaton Celebration
will be on hiatus for 2014.

The Bowlus Fine Arts Center, our venue for 21 years,
will be unavailable as will its services which
are vital to the Keaton Celebration.

The Keaton will return in 2015 bigger and better.
We hope to see all of you then.
