It is well known that employees today have significant options for choosing where to live and work, and communities of our size, geography and location must provide the quality of life amenities that make moving here attractive. A major piece of that is arts and culture, including the performing arts, museums, galleries, independent artists, craft breweries, locally owned restaurants and entrepreneurial shops. The State of the Arts is the annual event celebrating the power of the arts in our community.
Tickets are $25. All are welcome to attend!
Parking is available on the streets downtown, at the nearby RoCo lot and the Radisson parking ramp. 90-minute parking on the streets starts at 8am, but the State of the Arts ends at 9am.
