This year’s Ordway Center for the Performing Arts Spring Fête featured a 1930s-inspired salute to New York City as a nod to the beloved musical “42nd Street,” opening at the Ordway in July.

Guests took a leisurely walk down a virtual street in the downtown St. Paul theater and enjoyed food from the St. Paul Hotel, cocktails, games, music and performances.

Proceeds from the event help fund Ordway Arts Education initiatives, a program introducing live theater experiences to thousands of students each year.
