The show must go on. The Union Colony Civic Center (UCCC) returns for a full 2021 fall semester of entertainment. It’s been over a year since the UCCC opened its doors back up for the community to experience live performances.
The Union Colony Civic Center provided small rental space for events since January, and the 2021 fall semester shows mark the first offering from the UCCC since COVID-19 regulations were lifted.
"We're excited to begin offering performances for the community," said Jason Evenson, City of Greeley manager of cultural Affairs. "We love bringing back popular artists such as Amy Grant and the Oak Ridge Boys and bringing new entertainment options like the Flobots and The Silhouettes from America's Got Talent."
