2020 Southtown Showcase Postponed due to COVID-19 restrictions

2020_Southtown_ShowcaseIt saddens us to announce that the 2020 Southtown Showcase is being POSTPONED. With the City's ban on gatherings of 50 people or more, we can't hold the event as originally scheduled. While disappointed to make this decision, we understand that safety comes first and the decision is in the best interest of everyone involved.
