Live Events


Everyone gets at least fifteen minutes of fame. We can give you five. Side Street Studio Arts in Elgin is opening up our space for performers of all types to try out their material.

On the third Wednesday of the month performers will receive five minutes each to do their thing. Click the photo to be taken to our events page on FaceBook where you can learn more!
