The arts scene in Sioux Falls is one of the best in this region and this weekend the city of Sioux Falls gets to showoff just good we are.

This Saturday (April 28) the Washington Pavilion will host the 57th annual Arts Night Experience.

Arts Night Experience is the premier arts gala event of the year with food, fine art and competitive bidding in support of the Visual Arts Center and the Washington Pavilion. The fun begins at 5:30 PM on the stage of the Mary W. Sommervold Hall.
