“Live at the Larimer” started in 2005 when Dean Parrish, Nicole Aiken, and Denise Aiken approached The Arts Council of Greater Palatka’s Board of Directors with a plan to start a coffee house in the Scarlett Hill Theater, a place where people could relax and enjoy a variety of talented artists. There began our monthly series, “Live at the Larimer.”  After six years, Dean decided to take a break and we now have Luke Taft who has given of his time to keep this great program going forward.  We will miss Dean and thank him so much for all he has done for the Arts Council.

Each fourth Friday of the month we have music groups or solo acts come to the Larimer and perform, usually followed by an open mike.  In the last six years, we have had fabulous talent grace us with their music, their poetry, and even their jokes.  We have been able to give the opportunity for young musicians such as local resident Zach Tremblay a place to showcase their incredible talents. 

We serve great coffee and light refreshments to our guests, and we invite them to enjoy the art in our galleries. 

We would like to invite you to come, spend an evening with us, and experience great music in a casual atmosphere.  “Live at the Larimer” is held on the fourth Friday of the month at the Historic Larimer Art Center located at 216 Reid Street Palatka Florida .  Doors open at 6:30 pm. Show starts at 7:00 pm.  Cost is $7.00 at the door. 

We want to thank the Putnam County Tourist Development Council, our members, and all of our performers! 



The Sironka African Dance Troupe performed a very special Live at the Larimer event. They were in the United States doing a tour and we happened to get the opportunity to have them appear at the Larimer.  The audience was just delighted by the show. They performed their dances and chants on stage in the Scarlett Hill theater then traveled through the lobby and galleries where guests were also seated. The troupe brought their hand made Jewelry and laid it out for everyone to see and purchase. We are so pleased to have had the opportunity to have them as our guests. The funds raised that night went to the Dance Troupe which they use for betterment of the women in their country.
