2016 Events Calendar
The Heart of Danville is thrilled to announce their 2016 schedule of events, which includes traditional favorites and some exciting new additions. After completing an event assessment in January, the Heart has reevaluated their event line-up and made changes that correspond with community feedback.
The first event of the year will be the Annual Meeting and Downtown Revitalization Awards held on Friday, April 15 at the Community Arts Center. The awards will begin at 5:30, if you would like to make a nomination please visit HERE.
“There have been some exciting changes to our calendar and we are glad to finally make our announcement,” said Heart of Danville Project Manager, Nick Wade.
Some of the changes include the replacement of the monthly Second Saturday with the Quarterly Love Local Friday. The first Love Local Friday will be held on May 20, followed by the first Lawn Chair Theatre of the summer. Similar to Second Saturdays, Love Local Fridays will feature giveaways from the Heart and special promotions. Keep an eye out on Facebook for more up-to-the minute announcements on Love Local Fridays. For more information on Love Local Fridays and the change from Second Saturday, visit HERE.
Love Local Fridays is not the only addition to the Heart of Danville Events Calendar. This year the Heart will be celebrating ghouls, goblins and things that go bump in the night with the first-ever Halloween Festival. Be on the lookout for more on this exciting new event later in the year.
Keeping with tradition the Heart will once again host their summer film series, Lawn Chair Theatre. The Heart will show family friendly movies every third Friday of the month in May, June and July. They are still looking for a sponsor for one movie, if you would be interested in sponsoring a film contact the heart at firstname.lastname@example.org. Clean-off your blankets and get your picnic baskets ready to join the Heart of Danville for another exciting summer of movies under the beautiful Danville night sky.
