Downtown Partners

Become an Artspire Downtown Partner!
Partner with Artspire and host your own arts-related event. Activities may be held outside or inside your locations, and should compliment the artistic theme of Artspire. Past participants’ events include, a kid’s coloring contest, featured local artist’s work in business, a special Artspire-themed food or drink special, and many others. For more information, or to apply, follow the link below to the Downtown Participant Application.

New this year, to encourage Artspire patrons to visit downtown businesses, anyone who posts a picture highlighting the downtown business offerings to social media with “#Artspire” will be entered (up to 5 entries) into a drawing for an Artspire/Downtown La Crosse prize package.  Also new this year, there will be an “Artspire Happy Hour” on Saturday 5-8 pm, where there will NOT be activities in and around the Pump House and attendees will be encouraged to spend time in the larger downtown area.
