Taste of the Arts - Fundraising Event

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Arts for Learning WNY


A celebration of the rich diversity of arts and culture in Western New York, Taste of the Arts is an event that combines the arts with delicious food, drinks, and community. This in-person event will feature live creative activities presented by our roster of Teaching Artists and cultural partners, raffle baskets and fun games, live entertainment and performances, and food and drinks from some of our favorite local restaurants and breweries. Taste of the Arts will coincide with National Young Audiences Arts for Learning Week, which celebrates the significant contribution of creative arts education of children throughout the United States.

Proceeds from the event will directly contribute towards the professional roster of Teaching Artists who will implement creative learning opportunities to more than 30,000 youth and families in all 8 counties of Western New York. Over 85% of our programming is offered free to the community because of fundraising events like Taste of the Arts.

We are looking for volunteers to help make this event and evening a success!
