The Guthrie Center at the Old Trinity Church

The Guthrie Center’s office hours are
Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM.

Founded by Arlo Guthrie to honor the legacy of his parents, Woody Guthrie and Marjorie Mazia-Guthrie, The Guthrie Center seeks to cultivate cultural preservation, promote educational achievement and foster community outreach to meet the ongoing needs of the community.

The Guthrie Center was founded by Arlo to offer interfaith services and spiritual exchange. It brings individuals together for cultural, educational, and spiritual exchange. It is dedicated to meeting the ongoing needs of the community by working together with other non-profit agencies to serve those in need. In doing so we hope to create an environment where individuals can come together to cultivate a deeper awareness of culture, humanity and the environment of which we are all a part.

The Guthrie Center depends upon the support of donors and friends to help fulfill our ambitious goals and efforts.

Friday, May 24 and Saturday, May 25


Every spring Arlo returns to the “scene of the crime” to help keep things going at the Old Trinity Church. This year is especially exciting as his current tour is celebrating the anniversary of the movie “Alice’s Restaurant” that came out 50 years ago this fall! We invite you to come sing along to a chorus of the old song and help raise some money for all of the wonderful things that we do here at The Guthrie Center year round! We thank you for your continued support!!

What we have to look forward to:

The entire anti-war, anti-stupid epic the tale of Arlo, Alice, Obie, a half a ton of garbage and the draft board is presented here in every comical detail. Guthrie will also serve up a wide variety of classic favorites and rarely performed deep cuts anthologized from his expansive career. Joining Arlo will be son, Abe, on vocals and keyboard, Terry A La Berry Hall on drums, Steve Ide on guitar and vocals and Carol Ide on percussion and vocals.

Sarah Lee Guthrie, a noted singer-songwriter herself, will perform selections that impeccably complement the evening.

Arlo’s May performances are now sold out.
