Each year on Memorial Day weekend we celebrate the arts by bringing a variety of art forms to the community.
Here is a schedule of the performing arts events. Please list/post on your web page or any other calendar or posting you can access. Also, send a note to everyone on any of your mailing lists. Print it out and share it or tape it up somewhere. But most of all, join us for a rocking good time.
