Comedy Central Our Way

We take comedy *very* seriously here at Elm Street.  Comedy introduces people to something theatrical in a fun way – whether that’s through improvisation where a suggestion gets brought to life on the fly or through scripted stand-up which still relies on listening and reacting to your audience!

Because we think laughing is so important these days, we’ve expanded our comedy offerings to include our monthly iThink Improv Troupe shows AND a brand-new monthly comedy series collaboration with Jessica It’s All Good, The Lasting Laugh! Check out what’s coming up that you can enjoy safely spaced out or from home!

Juneteenth Celebration of Togetherness – 2024

As an organization, Woodstock Arts continues to grow and encompass more of a cultural and artistic leader in Cherokee County. Our goal with our festivals is to engage community through purposefully and accurately celebrating under recognized events throughout different communities in the Metro Atlanta area. All of our festivals are meant to bring a since of community pride and celebration. The historical legacy of Juneteenth shows the value of never giving up hope in uncertain times. For those who are unfamiliar with the holiday, it derives from the freeing of the final slaves after the Civil War. Even though the Emancipation Proclamation was made effective in 1863, it could not be implemented in places still under Confederate control. As a result, in the westernmost Confederate state of Texas, enslaved people would not be free until much later. Freedom finally came on June 19, 1865, when some 2,000 Union troops arrived in Galveston Bay, Texas. The army announced that the more than 250,000 enslaved black people in the state, were free by executive decree. This day came to be known as “Juneteenth,” by the newly freed people in Texas.
