Arts on the Race

Brought to you by Downtown South Bend and Venues, Parks & Arts

Join us the first Saturday of each month during the summer as we celebrate the arts during East Race rafting. Arts on the Race is a continuation of Art Beat as local artists display and sell their art work along the East Race. Come out, take a ride down the East Race, meet an artist, and take home a new treasure! (Find info on rafting here)
