Riverside Events, Museums, & Galleries 6/2-6/8/2022
Arts Walk tonight, Anime Riverside at the Convention Center this weekend, and Tea Time for the kids at the Heritage House in a Lewis Carroll style.
It Feels Like An Arts Walk Day!
Rip that May 2022 page from the calendar because it's June now. The afternoons are long, The Cheech opens a few days before summer begins, and on this first Thursday you can get started early when Arts Walk takes over Downtown.
Stephanie Barbé Hammer will read from her new novel (and Inlandia Books' first full-length fiction title) Pretend Plumber, and Typewriter Muse Bob Marshall will set up a collection of vintage machines for you to try out for yourself on the ground level arcade.
Of course, the best parts of Arts Walk are never planned. Go find them tonight!
