Lex-Ham Community Arts has its roots as a program of the Lexington-Hamline Community Council in the early 1990s. It grew over the years and became a nonprofit organization in 2003. The mission is to bring the community together through the arts, including theater and band. Both are well-established in the community and enjoyed by many members of said community. The Lex-Ham Community Band hosts the BandWidth Music Festival every year and has other events throughout the year as well. In addition to performances, the Lex-Ham Community Theater provides improv classes and acting classes. The latter is in conjunction with Saint Paul Community Education.
