2019 Topic

Duos

To be held in Sculthorpe Theatre or in Knights of Columbus Hall (that's a separate building immediately behind the Capitol Theatre) TBD

Coffee is provided but patrons are expected to provide their own lunch - either by bringing it hence the "brown bag" - or ordering it. The surest way to get your lunch is to order in advance by adding the $10 option when you buy your pass.  You make your choice of sandwich at the desk in the lobby of the Capitol before 1:00pm on Saturday.
