Hundreds of people streamed into the Glasshouse on Saturday August 24 for the first community open house at the venue.
Organiser Pam Milne said it was an opportunity for the community to enjoy the "atmosphere of this fabulous community venue".
"We have so many activities," she said excitedly.
"There are drumming workshops, entertainment, gallery and back of house tours, craft activities and the Port Macquarie Library is even doing a virtual reality session for the kids!"
Mother of four Cassie O'Brien said it was the first time she had been in the Glasshouse venue.
"There is great entertainment for the kids today and it is an opportunity for me to check out this amazing venue," Mrs O'Brien said.
