In a year when uncertainty is the norm, we’re so lucky to be living, working, and playing in a City of Dreams. A city where there’s still a strong sense of community, there’s a shared excitement for what the future will bring, and the next big chapter in Downtown’s story is just about ready to start appearing in the skyline. 

Join us drive-in style for your favorite event of the year! You can expect an installation dinner like we’ve never done it before, but the laughs, inspiration, and levity are still guaranteed 

The program will include the long-anticipated final edition of KevTalk for some side-splitting roasts to take the edge off 2020.  You can expect appearances from some very special guests from the incoming administration as we give Mayor Faulconer a cinematic masterpiece of a sendoff and celebrate the tenacity of our 2020 Board of Directors. 

Other special features: 

  • Our signature installation videos to entertain and delight 
  • Drive-in themed concessions 
  • A surprise musical release that might just be the next Downtown hit 
  • The roast we’ve all been waiting for to end 2020 with a laugh 

Confirm your registration today for the exclusive premiere that’s sure to be the talk of the town.
