The City Club Presents Free Fridays in August at Playhouse Square

The City Club Presents Free Fridays in August at Playhouse Square

We are excited to introduce our City Club Friday Forums to our new neighbors as we prepare for our move to Playhouse Square! Since 1928, the City Club has hosted a LIVE broadcast of one of our weekly forums. And during the month of August, you can take part in this nearly 100 year old tradition at Playhouse Square - for FREE!

The City Club invites you to join us as we bring our Friday Forum into Playhouse Square and usher in the next era of conversations of consequence that help democracy thrive.

We'll be outdoors at U.S. Bank Plaza on Fridays in August, starting at noon. Bring a lunch or visit an area restaurant and join us for a free forum each Friday in August, and help us usher in the next era of conversations of consequence that help democracy thrive.
