We will be closed to the public until further notice, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The health and safety of our visitors, staff, and community are our top priority, which is why we’re urging you to stay at home, take care of yourselves, be safe, and follow guidelines from your local and state health officials.

All activities and events at the SWVA Cultural Center & Marketplace have been cancelled or postponed to a future date. Organizational leadership will continue to evaluate the situation, with guidance from public health officials, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, and the World Health Organization, and react accordingly.

Please direct questions to info@friendsofswva.org. We look forward to seeing you soon, in the interim, look for updates on our website and social media.
