Spring Events in Bloom at Concordia

SM Events pic spring 2018

At Concordia, it has definitely been more difficult than usual to get excited for the start of spring this year, thanks mainly to multiple snowstorms hitting most of our locations since the first official day of spring, March 20. But hopefully that’s all behind us now and we can focus on what we are all looking forward to: sunshine, new life and, of course, Concordia’s spring events!

From now until June, there are a bunch of events that are open to the community at a number of Concordia locations. Fun, educational, inspiring – we have something for everyone this year. For the complete list, visit our Events & News page here, but below is a preview of just a few that you may be interested in. We hope to see you!
