The Midtown Mini Midtown Love celebration packages everything that is exceptional about Midtown into one event. This year’s reimagined event will fully align with the reinvestment in Second Saturday and our local art community. With elevated and engaging art experiences throughout the evening including a 35-piece mini art gallery, this will be a one-of-a-kind opportunity to network, celebrate, and enjoy excellent food and drinks. The funds raised on this evening will benefit Midtown’s vibrant small business and arts community and future Second Saturday programming.

The fully reimagined Midtown Love celebration, hosted at Faces for so many years, will move to The Mansion Apartments and feature a 35-piece art gallery curated by Faith J. McKinnie, specialty cocktails, craft beer and wine, live music, live performers, unique culinary experiences, awe-inspiring décor and more.

This fundraiser is an opportunity to network with Midtown’s key influencers, business owners, and community members, but more importantly, will help to support the business community and local parks in our district. Specifically, the funds raised from the Midtown Mini Midtown Love event go toward grants to small businesses, street buskers to liven the community, restaurant and retail promotions, park infrastructure, and healthy programming.
