Ways to Connect


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.’


The Cape Girardeau Municipal Band is back at the Capaha Park Band Shell with their first concert of the season on Wednesday, June 7th at 7:30 p.m., where they’ll play Rock and Roll tunes.

Speaking of tunes (at twilight), the Moho Trippers take the stage at the Common Pleas Courthouse Gazebo on Friday, June 9th at 7:30 p.m., where you’ll hear jazz standards, soulful originals and cabaret classics.


Get a paddle wet and enjoy a summer evening from a canoe at the Nature Center’s Canoeing Fun event on Friday, June 2nd from 4-7 p.m. The kids fishing pond is a great place for beginners to try their skills and practice their strokes. Brief instruction and safety tips will be provided and then families are on their own to paddle away.


Southeast Missouri Native Maggie Thorn takes the stage at Tunes at Twilight this Friday at 7 p.m. at this free outdoor concert series on the lawn of the Common Pleas Courthouse Gazebo.
