Depending on if you are a permanent resident of Columbia or if you are just a student, you might be very happy or very sad to see college students heading home for the summer. Either way, Columbia is full of community events during the summer to keep you entertained. Here are a few of the things Vox is looking forward to this summer. Also, keep an eye out for our Summer Preview for Columbia. This should be out sometime in late May.
Family Fun Fests
The third Wednesday of each month from now through September, the city hosts a Family Fun Fest. Each fest includes different activities depending on the theme of the month.

Outdoor Movies in the Park
Movies under the stars in Flat Branch Park for $2. It doesn’t get much better than that.
Art in the Park
This annual event is coordinated by the Columbia Art League and will feature more than 110 artists. This is a great chance to buy some one-of-a-kind art pieces and get to know some members of the local arts community. Some of the artists Vox has written about recently will be there as well including Chuck Kubba.
