A Call To Participate! – Join us in celebrating our new Civic Building at Veterans Plaza


The Grand Opening for the Silver Spring Civic Building at Veterans Plaza is Thursday, July 8th. Together with Silver Spring Town Center, Inc., we’ve planned for a joyous, wonderful community celebration starting in the late afternoon, followed by the opening ceremony led by our County Executive at 6:30 p.m., and capped by our first Silver Spring Swings Summer Concert with the Fabulous Bel Airs from 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m…. Please join us!


For the subsequent four Thursdays after the Grand Opening (July 15, 22, 29, and August 5) we will be having a series of Community Celebrations to accompany the Concert Series. Each Celebration will have a different theme highlighting different aspects of our community.

Tables will be made available on Veterans Plaza to organizations, institutions, businesses, and entrepreneurs that want to share information with the community relevant to the Community Theme for the week. (There is no cost for this. We will provide the tables.)

Additionally, the first fifteen (15) groups that sign up for each Celebration will have the opportunity to share their own fun, engaging 60-second “infomercial” with the concert audience at intermission.

So, pick the Celebration Theme that best fits you and let us know your interest by simply e-mailing:

Wow ! This is so exciting! I can't believe this is finally really happening-
our own Silver Spring Civic Center will be OPEN in 16 days.

I love all the special events that celebrate many facets of our community.

Many thanks to all who help make this dream a reality.
