Get a taste of live music again with WPS' Side/Show; a unique performance format that will feature live performers in non-traditional settings in a responsible, socially distanced way.

We will follow all mass gathering guidelines. Masks will be required at all locations. There will also be stringent cleaning measures and performers will be safely distanced.

Admission to this special event is FREE courtesy of the City of Hickory.
