At Culture After Dark music and socializing are always free; food, drinks, and special programs are available for a small fee.

The evening starts at 5:30 when the Sancho Street Side food truck arrives; Pick up a bite to eat, head inside to the bar, and grab a table with your friends in the Creative Commons before the live music starts performance by Woody Pines starts at 6pm. Once you’re done socializing explore some more of our Creative Commons by perusing the JCAHC’s Home School Art Class exhibit celebrating National Youth in Art month. 

Culture After Dark has more to offer throughout the evening!  If the music gets you in the mood to dance then our Square Dancing class from 7-8pm ($5/participant) is just the thing for you!
