We believe we are all called to be creative. We want to spread joy by providing a space where visitors can come, and enjoy positive, uplifting art created by local and regional artists of all ages and renew their own creativity.

Our hope is that after guests experience The Joy & Whimsy Depot, they will spread joy and kindness in the world.

The Joy & Whimsy Depot is a non-profit entity that is free to the public (donations graciously accepted). While we are Christians, and the Depot is housed in a church building, we welcome people of all faiths.

Seriousness is not a fruit of the SpiritJoy is.”

Those who shun the whimsy of things will experience rigor mortis before death.

-Tom Robbins

Living a life fully engaged and full of whimsy and the kind of things that love does is something most people plan to do, but along the way they just kind of forget.
