2nd Wednesdays


2nd Wednesdays

2nd Wednesdays is a series of free lectures, concerts, and special arts events for all adults in the community. This series spotlights local talent and provides a first-rate cultural experience. Its other aim is to afford community adults an opportunity to spend time sharing culture and conversation with neighbors. It’s held on the second Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm. Each program kicks off with a neighborhood social from 7:00–7:30 pm with presentations beginning immediately after. Free parking is available in the parking lot behind 2510 St. Paul Street.
