Bring Music and Movies to Parks this Summer!

Performing Arts Icon Last summer, thousands of people visited city parks to see Bloomington's finest musicians and entertaining movies. Sponsoring Performing Arts Series performances supports local artists and provides excellent business exposure. Align your business with the sometimes bluesy, sometimes groovy, and always energetic, up-and-coming local musicians and the best of Bloomington's music scene. Performing Arts Series sponsors receive numerous promotional benefits, including business name listings on 4,000 concert schedule cards circulated throughout the community; a banner at the sponsored performance as well as an opportunity to announce the band from the stage; business logo, name and link through Bloomington Parks and Recreation's Web sites and e-mails; and more.

Become a part of the Performing Arts Series' 32-year history of providing free family-friendly entertainment for the people of Bloomington!
