Sanford Entertainment News

There always seems to be something going on in Sanford! In addition to community events, family activities, performances at our schools, and happenings at our many parks and outdoor facilities, Sanford has an active and talented arts and entertainment scene.

The Temple Theatre is Carolina’s Center for the Performing Arts.
