Wade Oval Wednesdays
Summer is officially here and what better way to celebrate than with a night in the circle. University Circle that is, where on Wade Oval Wednesdays dancing with your shoes off while basking in the setting sun is a must.
This small evening concert series turned “party in the park” attracts more than 10,000 visitors each summer and accommodates a wide variety of musical tastes. Head down for your favorites, or get inspired with something new. From R&B, motown, disco and funk to afro-beats, country, rock, latin and swing, there’s something for everyone.
Food and beverage vendors line the circle for hungry folks coming straight from work and picnicking is encouraged. This year, University Circle Inc. will also host a weekly Farmers Market.
Wade Oval Wednesdays take place Wednesday evenings now through August 31 from 6-9pm in University Circle’s Wade Oval.
