Summer at the Center: Aphrodite’s Switchboard @ Arvada Center for the Arts & Humanities
Jun 21 @ 7:30 pm – Jun 22 @ 9:30 pm

Due to popular demand, Wonderbound is excited to present a special encore weekend of Aphrodite’s Switchboard, the celebrated collaboration with Chimney Choir featuring all original music.

Aphrodite is a switchboard operator who has the power to control the love lives of mortals with a single phone connection. Her mission, with the help of her steadfast companion Hermes, is to bring love and connection back into a drab world. But beware crossed wires and best-laid plans, as meddling may have unintended consequences and the goddess herself may become ensnared in the very cords she wields.

Cherry Blossom Festival

Fans of taiko drumming, teriyaki chicken, sake and Japanese artwork and wares won’t want to miss this year’s Cherry Blossom Festival – “Sakura Matsuri” in Japanese.

The festival celebrates the Japanese heritage and culture through live entertainment, food and drink, a marketplace and informative exhibits and demonstrations.

The gymnasium in the Temple is home to a variety of food and drink, including the popular teriyaki chicken plate lunch, Asian chicken salad, sushi and delicious Japanese sweets called manju. Volunteers will be pouring complimentary hot green tea, but if that’s too much heat on a warm summer day, head outside for a cold glass of craft beer and a tasty teriyaki burger. For a real Japanese experience, try the sake – Kampai (“Cheers”)!
