Our latest WPB Weekend Arts Guide has everything you need to know to make this Fourth of July weekend an artful one!

Please note that the reopening situation has a lot of businesses adapting quickly. Please acknowledge a business' hours and be patient and understanding if a space has elected to change their reopening strategy. Be sure to wear a mask when appropriate and when required by businesses. Always respect a business' customer limit, operating practices, and mask or hygiene requirements.
