Be Bold and Prosper!

Be Bold and Prosper!

Uptown’s cultural history is unique. Since the beginning, Uptown has been a shopping, entertainment, and dining destination for people of all walks of life; a port of entry for immigrants; and a home to generations of visual and performing artists. The histories of Uptown and the Uptown Chamber of Commerce are inextricably linked. After all, it was one of the Chamber’s founding members who coined “Uptown” as the name for our neighborhood. From 1923 to 2023, the Chamber has served and promoted Uptown’s vibrant business districts, connecting them to residents and visitors.

To honor its 100 years of service, the Chamber will host Be Bold and Prosper!, a celebration of our community. Join us for: 
  • Storytelling by past and present Chamber members  
  • Performances by The Baton Show Lounge, Kuumba Lynx, TimeLine Theatre Company, and DJ L O Kari
  • An international menu of light bites showcasing the tastes and talents of our members.  Libations available for purchase.  
Date:  Friday, May 5th, 2023 
Time:  5:30pm - 8:00pm
Location:  The Riviera Theatre
