COVID-19 brought the unexpected and took a toll on many businesses and events in 2020. Restricting guidelines made even the most casual gatherings seem unsafe at times, which slowed so many original plans down. The District’s construction was one of many postponements and surprise obstacles that were (and are currently) being worked through.
Despite the damper of a global pandemic, the community maintained its excitement of the new buildings consisting of The Factory and the Main Event – opening in 2021. Many community partners came together to spread the word of the new buildings, the opportunities that came with them, and help shape the vision of what’s to be. We’d like to say thank you to all those who have been patient with the construction process, adapting to changes due to the pandemic, and are still supporting us as we approach the new year.
