Join us for a first post- COVID art exhibit, say hello to the ‘new’ Red River Brewpub and prepare for a second wave of homegrown goodness. You’ll be happy to know that the pandemic hasn’t shut down summer camp OR the rampant creativity of local young people at Film Prize Jr. The temps are toasty but we love our #CoolDowntown.
