Thank you to everyone who supported a very successful inaugural season of Second Saturday on the Square in 2014. See you in the Spring of 2015!
What is Second Saturday on the Square?
Second Saturday on the Square is a celebration of the arts in the city of York. Known for its rich source of musicians, artists, and performers, York’s artistic scene is one to be cherished and celebrated. Second Saturday on the Square looks to bring the arts of the community to its center – to Continental Square. Activities take place from 10am-3pm on each second Saturday of the month (May through October) and is FREE to the public.
Second Saturday on the Square is also a call to action. Our center point of the downtown area, Continental Square, is a location that holds the promise of a vibrant, active community gathering place. For years, however, this space was used sparingly and without a strong emphasis as a vital community locale. Some only see Continental Square as a crossroad; we see it as a potential center of community – buzzing with activity, commerce, art, and interaction.
Who is Second Saturday on the Square?
Members of the artistic community working in conjunction with Downtown Inc (and through the generous financial support of the Cultural Alliance of York County) to create showcases that will invite the larger community of York to take a look at Continental Square in a different way. To see it for it potential as a gathering place, not just a pass-through.
Why Second Saturday on the Square?
To bring awareness and celebration to our artistic community in York and to begin to see Continental Square for the hub that is truly is – a hub of community here in the White Rose City.
