The annual Chevron Family Theatre Festival welcomes the community to a day of affordable, high quality family entertainment. The City of Walnut Creek, the Lesher Center for the Arts, the Diablo Regional Arts Association, and San Ramon–based Chevron work closely to transform the Lesher Center and the street in front of the Center into a day-long festival of fun, arts, and entertainment for families and visitors. Each year, thousands of adults and children enjoy more than two dozen professional performances in the Lesher Center’s three theaters, in the lobbies, and right outside. Events outside are free; performances inside the Center’s three theatres are just $5 per person and run 30 - 60 minutes long and are appropriate for all ages.
Join NBC Bay Area and Telemundo 48 at the Chevron Family Theater Festival where you can fill a backpack with school supplies (Build a Backpack) to donate to Cambridge Elementary School in Concord. This will kick off our Support our Schools campaign July 20-26. The third annual Support our Schools campaign, in partnership with Family Giving Tree and Comcast, invites the public to donate backpacks supplies to help students and teachers in their communities and make online donations to support local schools by visiting vgt.familygivingtree.org/NBCBayArea. Last year, the stations’ Supporting Our Schools effort resulted in the collection of more than 4,100 backpacks of supplies for local Bay Area K-12 classrooms through the Family Giving Tree Back-to-School program, valued at over $120,000.
