Annual Events

“This evening was a joy to attend. The entire evening was interactive, exciting, and ​completely engaging for both young and old. The quality and dedication of the their performers was on full display. Every act was very well thought out and methodically rehearsed. The hosts for the evening were a delight, engaging the audience through raffles, give-a-ways, and just dynamic personalities. I was such a pleasant evening and I know that I would like to attend in the future.” – Travis I. Cuckler (Music Instructor at Matthew Gallistel Language Academy) on the Night of Latin Culture

At Sociedad Cultural Y Civica la Reforma we host 3 annual events which have grown to become Northwest Indiana’s premier cultural go-to functions. Even though SCCLR only host these 3 out of the year, we are constantly working around the clock to improve and attract new visitors. We have seen an increase in attendance over the last 10 years and the numbers continue to grow. From fundraisers to education sessions to even LIVE entertainment and art galleries, we want to give everything we can to you and all FREE.

With the help of sponsors and volunteers we have been fortunate enough to host and have successful events year after year. So thank we you!
