Artspire 2018

$1,200 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 3 people in 5 months
Admission to Artspire is always FREE, due to the gracious support of our sponsors and community supporters. As Artspire grows, nearly doubling in participation and attendance every year, the needs for funding increase as well.

Artspire draws over 10,000 participants, attendees and volunteers on its grounds over the course of the two day event. If each of those 10,000 individuals gave a small amount, it would make a huge difference to the outcome of this year's event.

If you have attended and enjoy Artspire, would like it to remain a FREE event, and believe in its mission, please consider supporting it here now.

The 5th Annual Artspire is June 8 & 9, 2018.

"Artspire is such an incredible event, because it is truly for everyone- a weekend where people from every walk of life can come together and appreciate all that this community has to offer." Brian Fukuda, Artspire 2018 Chairperson
