2017 West Bank Crash Course!

The West Bank Business Association is excited to announce our third annual Crash Course event – a week-long introduction to the West Bank neighborhood. We’ll spend the week highlighting our great venues, restaurants, and small businesses – and hope you can join us! The 2017 Crash Course will be held from October 9-15.

Hosted by the West Bank Business Association and The Southern Theater, the event is a chance to get to know the neighborhood and our businesses, experience new cuisine and music, and more!

And — great news! We’ve received some grant funding this year so we can promote this more intently with students and faculty of our local institutions, as well as guests to the neighborhood. The Crash Course is a great way to introduce your business to new customers! Are you interested in getting involved? There are a few ways to participate:

Host a Workshop or Session

Do you have a skill to share, or a specialty your business offers? We’ll be crafting a schedule of tours and events for the week and would love to highlight your business! Examples of past workshops include:

  • Intro to Malabari Region and Spices – hosted by Malabari Kitchen
  • Gearing up for Winter Cycling – hosted by Freewheel Bike, at the Southern Theater
  • The Secret to Sambusa – hosted by Afro Deli, at Brian Coyle Center
  • Marketing and Branding for Music – at The Southern Theater

Help with Planning and Promotion

Not interested or able to lead a workshop this year? Help us as we plan and promote this event! We’ll be sending out flyers and posters throughout the University District and would love it if you post and share.

– Monday, October 9 – Saturday, October 15, 2017
– Location: The Southern Theater and throughout the West Bank
