South Bend’s ‘Best. Week. Ever.’ returns with new dates
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.”
