Special Events & Music

We throw some amazingly unique and entertaining shows that you won't want to miss! By combining visual arts, performance arts and live music we can deliver a perfectly balanced power-punch of the arts. We have plans in the works to build an outdoor stage on the green space in front of our building. This will allow us to expand the 3rd Sundays Market and offer a 'music in the park' concert experience to our community.

So far with the expansion of our outdoor Music space we are planning market days, music festivals and hosting the first annual EDAD Festival in 2019.

We are just getting started with outdoor events so follow our Facebook to know what's up next.
