‘Hit Refresh’ in South Bend this spring

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Spring has sprung, and South Bend Venues Parks & Arts invites you to get out and enjoy it!

South Bend VPA, in partnership with Downtown South Bend, Inc., is introducing a new campaign called “Hit Refresh,” which highlights several outdoor events in the community throughout April and May.

Included in the campaign is the Studebaker Plaza in downtown South Bend, which will be open seven days a week as an outdoor dining and entertainment space. Features like yard games, photo ops, fire pits, music, and more will shower the plaza in spring entertainment.

Drink service will be provided via The Exchange during their normal operating hours, and guests can enjoy live entertainment from The Music Village on Thursdays and Fridays from 5 to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Three other pop-up venues, located as parklets in front of Chicory Café, Taqueria Chicago, and The General/Hammer & Quill, provide outdoor dining spaces for residents and visitors to enjoy.

“With vaccines rolling out quickly and the weather warming up, now is a great time to gather safely outdoors,” said Mayor James Mueller. “I thank our VPA and DTSB teams for developing this creative program that offers our residents more outdoor options to enjoy as we keep up our guard against the spread of COVID-19.”
