    A lovely venue with beautiful lush outdoor gardens featuring gigantic sprawling trees, well manicured lawns, elegant fountains, and quaint enclosed areas, including a small outdoor theatre with excellent acoustics. I haven't been inside the center proper. But, I've heard that it has a lot to offer as well, including performance spaces for rent.

    Went to the Thomas Center for Jest Fest and had a great time. Free to the public and a wonderful event. Even saw a sword swallower.
