Music, performing arts, and other creative outlets help people build their self-confidence, express their feelings, and appreciate a newfound hobby. The Memorial District is proud to have excellent opportunities for a variety of interests.
Queensbury Theatre works hard to bring performances to the Memorial District. For example, check out Brand New Day, the 2021 Queensbury Theatre Gala, on February 21, 2021.
