Score swag from Art on the Ave Festival!

Help us Kickstart this baby!

We are mere days away from Art on the Ave Festival and we have begged, borrowed and - OK we draw the line before stealing - in order to make the most amazing and inspiring event that I've ever had the privilege to be involved with. Our volunteer committee members and community partners have really stretched to make this an incredible festival for Tacoma. The bands will be incredible, the live artists will WOW you, the food will be delicious, the selection of vendors is larger and more eclectic than ever before and where else can you play a gigantic board game in the middle of the street? Tacomapoly should be super fun for people of any age. We also have a merchandise tent set up so you can take home a souvenir of your day at the festival. You'll find plastic mood cups, stickers, buttons, frisbees, T-shirts and more! Plus there will be CDs from some of the bands who are performing that day! 

It's going to be, in a word, awesome! 

But we could use a little help from our friends. All of this should be documented on film, don't you think? And if we had funding, we could have even more art supplies for the hands-on art booths. We have a hand full of AoA T-shirts but they are so cool, we really wish we had more of them to offer. 

You can help us make all that happen and more. My people have been working diligently on this Kickstarter for MONTHS and because of bureaucratic BS it took more than 3 weeks to get it approved through Amazon Payments and Kickstarter so now instead of a month we have just a matter of DAYS to meet the goal. Are you up for the challenge?  Can we raise $5000 in just 4 days? 

We like a challenge here in Tacoma, don't we?

Please follow this link to find out what you get for helping with this effort.

We promise not to think you are cheap if you only give $3.00. If everyone did that we would surely meet the goal! 

Please tell your friends. 

Thank you,
