Spiva Trivia Night

Every First Thurday 

Are you and your friends looking for something new and fun to do during Downtown Joplin’s First Thursday? Look no further. This spring we are kick-starting a new monthly event in our Main Gallery! Beginning March 1, we will hold a four-round, team-based arts and culture trivia night that will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. on every First Thursday. The cost will be only $5 per person in each team with a limit of one to eight people per team. The more teammates you have, the higher your chances of winning! There will be three teams to a round and the team to win each round will win 75% of the entry fees. The remainder will go into raising money for Spiva’s Annual Fund Drive. Each round lasts 30 minutes, so we encourage you to come in, have a beer, grab a snack, and put on those thinking caps! All participants must be 21 or older. Sponsored by Missouri Eagle LLC.
