Concerts take place inside the Community Room at the Kentwood Library. Gurests are welcoed to bring their own beer or wine to enjoy at the show. Each concert will also have a food truck outside. Get out of the house and join us at the Kentwood Library for Winter evening fun!

Valentines-Dash-5k-full-page-flyer.jpgThis race will get you outside to enjoy a combination of trails and roads in Kentwood.
