This is a free event hosted by the Remsen Arts Center thanks to our sponsors, members, generous donations from the community, and a ReStart NY grant.

This may change by the opening. The Remsen Arts Center strongly suggests all persons attending our events follow these guidelines. No person shall be allowed on premises that is displaying symptoms of illness.
