SOUTH BEND, Ind. – South Bend Venues Parks & Arts’ fourth annual Best. Week. Ever. event returns to the city this August with a week-long celebration of South Bend’s culture and creativity.

BWE will be held from Sunday, August 1 to Saturday, August 7, 2021. Traditionally held at the beginning of the summer, BWE officials pushed the event back in anticipation of reduced COVID-19 infection rates.

“BWE represents the best of our community, made possible by so many talented organizations and partners,” said VPA Executive Director, Aaron Perri. “Last year we spent quite a bit of time online and distanced, but we’re excited to be hosting meaningful experiences in our favorite venues and green spaces - together once again.”

This year, BWE presenting sponsors United Federal Credit Union will be introducing a tiny house to the South Bend community. The house will be built and designed to give guests the opportunity to interact with a different approach to local living.

“We wanted to bring something unique to this year’s event by showcasing ideals, like innovation and creativity, that have made South Bend such a wonderful community for so many years,” said Carla Fazio-King, United’s Regional Market Development Manager. “We combined that inspiration with bringing awareness to United’s mortgage services and the tiny house was a perfect choice! Best of all, not only can attendees interact with the tiny house, they can actually enter to win it.”

More information about this year’s event lineup will be announced in the following weeks on the event’s Facebook page and on their soon-to-be launched website.
