Spring Community Day 2023
Join us on Community Day, April 19th, for fun in-person across the state. Regular scheduled classes are canceled, so you have the opportunity to attend one of our Community Day events or you can choose to have fun on your own to celebrate Community Day.
All entrance fees will be covered by the GCA Community Partnerships Team; however some locations may require a parking fee which will not be covered by GCA. Please see the event details below for locations that require parking fees.
