March – Stories IN VUE
Join us on historic Fairfield Avenue to create new memories
Shop Bellevue: Spoken Words will be held on First Friday, March 4 beginning at 5 pm bringing poetry to the Avenue. In Vue is taking a few poetic liberties. Stop in each business to discover their favorite poem. In Partnership with Queen City Poetry Slam In Vue is excited to be showcasing local poetic talent and hosting the our first ever Open Mic Poetry Night. Queen City Poetry Slam. You’ll be able to experience it at Avenue Brew from 7 to 9pm with registration at 6:30 if you want to participate. Where ever you are dining with us that night you’ll get a chance to channel your inner poet and childhood creativity through some fun mad-lib activities where you can put a whole new twist on Shakespeare or Robert Frost.
Visit our Facebook page and let us know your favorite poem or write a verse of your own to share.
Third Saturday Celebration: Storybook Stroll along historic Fairfield Avenue on Saturday, March 19 is a family friendly event where you will discover a creative land filled with stories. Stay in tune for details, but here are a few of the special features:
Costumes & Candy, Barbeque & Books: Gone with the Wind Comes to Bellevue, KY (this was originally scheduled for December, but due to illness was rescheduled) is a taste of the 1939 classic movie based on Margaret Mitchell’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. Visitors will have an opportunity to learn little-known aspects about the costumes of “Gone With the Wind” and see replica gowns with Avenue Brew cooking up Scarlett’s favorite Twelve Oaks Barbecue at Avenue Brew. You’ll also find themed events at Mama C’s Buttercream & Sprinkles, Le Sorelle and Circle of Hope.
Behringer-Crawford Museum/Display of Sekatary Haskins and members of the Sekatary Hawkins Club will be reading to kids at Frame & Hang Studio Gallery. They’ll enjoy hearing from this series of children’s adventure books that take place along a Covington riverbank. You’ll have a chance to learn more about the Behringer-Crawford Museum’s offerings while they’re there.
You’ll also find Laura Stanfield, the children’s services librarian at the Fort Thomas Branch of the Campbell County Public Library joining us to read books, makes simple crafts with the kids, and information about the library. If you’ve been thinking about getting a free library card she’ll make it easy by bringing applications for you to fill out.
Is it time to clear off some books from your shelf? Bring them to the Avenue with you to donate and we’ll make sure they get a new home because we believe every child should have books they can call their own.
