Plein Air Painting Between the Bluffs is an event where artists gather in the La Crosse area to paint directly from nature (plein air). Artists are encouraged to paint in (or near) downtown La Crosse where the public is welcome to watch them create their art.
This summer concert event for 21+ year old adults is a great way to kick back and relax with some friends. The scenic setting along the Black River backwaters is the ideal way to enjoy a summer Saturday evening. The event takes place in the parking lot of Huck Finn’s on the Water Restaurant and American Marine located on French Island in La Crosse, WI.
Proceeds from the event benefit the La Crosse Area Family YMCA’s Annual Campaign and allow the Y to provide our neighbors with financial assistance for membership and programs, making sure that you, your family and our community have the resources and support needed to learn, grow and thrive. In 2017, the Y provided 1.2 million dollars in financial assistance to more than 5,000 individuals in our community for memberships, programs, and child care.
