About the Event

Every year, Columbia’s beautiful historic Lincoln Street plays host to a special event – Live on Lincoln, the Finale to Artista Vista. For one evening only, the cobbled streets transform into a ground for creative expression and celebration as the city’s leading performing arts organizations come together in unity to put on an amazing show while patrons enjoy a delicious dinner provided by Blue Marlin. It’s a delightful sight to see so many different types of talent take their turns on stage. Patrons can expect musicians, singers, dancers, and theatre performers all take part in this extravaganza that could only occur in such a vibrant place like Columbia! 

The inaugural Live on Lincoln was developed and hosted by the Koger Center for the Arts in the fall of 2020 as a fundraising opportunity for local performing arts organizations unable to perform inside due to pandemic restrictions. Public enthusiasm for the event led to a partnership with the Vista Guild during Artista Vista in the spring of 2021 and again in 2022.
