Festival Sponsors

2017 marks the 51st anniversary of our gathering and celebrating creativity at our City’s signature event; we welcome you to Upper Arlington to celebrate with us.  The Festival is the largest event we produce, but it is not all we do.  Beyond this event we also offer, in partnership with the Cultural Arts Commission and UA Arts, a variety of programs in the arts including: Arts in Community Education; Arts in Community Spaces; Concourse Gallery visual arts exhibits; Music in the Parks free summer concerts; a diverse selection of theatrical productions and performance camps that take place at a variety of sites including community parks, gathering places and classrooms. 

We are so grateful to our sponsors who believe in investing in the arts; their generous support makes community events like this possible.  Please support those that support the arts!
