Some events occur every year while others happen every other year. Click on an event below to learn more. You can also check out our calendar here.

Over the Edge – This event happens every year in September. More details to come.
Victorian Christmas – The YWCA building is considered a Victorian age structure. Therefore, we open our doors specifically for people to tour certain spaces of the YWCA. They can see for themselves the grand old spaces. After touring, we encourage them to visit The Boutique.
