Thank you for making our Summer Concerts Series a success. Check back when the weather warms up for our new schedule

The Imlay City Downtown Development Authority would like to thank the Michigan Humanities Council for their generous support of the 2020 Summer Concert Series. A vibrant arts and cultural scene is important to strong communities and Michigan’s excellent quality-of-life, and ultimately, to Michigan’s economy.

 

The Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA) strengthens arts and culture in Michigan by increasing its visibility; supporting arts education; encouraging new, creative and innovative works of art; and broadening cultural understanding. A key conduit for arts and cultural information, MCACA is also a source of arts and culture grant funding.
