Summer has officially arrived, which means it’s officially time to kick off the Concordia summer events season! While COVID-19 has put a hold on many of our planned summer events this year, we’ve made some changes to a few of our annual favorites so that we can safely open them to the public. Get the details below and visit the Events and News page of our website for registration information.
