All About Cape: June 13 - 19, 2017

Jun 12, 2017

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a fast-paced, wildly funny show with a vibrant score you’ll be humming all week long, and you can see it at the Rust Flexible Theatre at the River Campus June 15-28.

Texas’ third smallest town, where the Lion’s Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies, comes to life at the River Campus, June 16-22, with ‘Greater Tuna.’

Also at the River Campus June 16 and 18 is Dear Edwina Jr., a girl-power musical about the joys of growing up.  Don’t miss the annual (and free!) River Campus Summer Arts Festival on June 17 with live music, magic, visual art, hands on family-friendly art activities, musical instrument petting zoos and much more.

Discover how pollinators play an important role in a plant’s life cycle at "What’s the Buzz" on Saturday, June 17 at the Nature Center.

Live like a local for a few days in Cape Girardeau - snag a hotel with a full kitchen and take full advantage of our outstanding farmer’s markets. Music fills the air at the Cape Riverfront Market, where vendors are sporting freshly harvested fruits and vegetables that reflect the best of the seasons.  Artisan bread, local honey and crafts are on sale, and food trucks and nearby coffee shops make this a great place to hang out for a while under the shady trees in the heart of historic downtown Cape Girardeau.

The Cape Riverfront Market runs Saturdays from 8 a.m. - Noon through the end of October. BBQ, lemonade, plants for your garden, baked goods and locally grown fruits and vegetables crowd the tables at the Cape Farmer's Market, Thursdays from noon-5 p.m. through mid-November in the parking lot of West Park Mall.  Vendors sell out, so get here earlier rather than later!
