Concert & Event Sponsorships

Enhance the cultural and social life of our community through the arts.

There are several kinds of business sponsorship opportunities at the Hopkins Center for the Arts. It is a great place for people to encounter your brand. Over 215,000 people visited the Center last year to enjoy the performing, visual or literary arts. Our season booklet (16pp) lands in 12,000 households every August. Signage about our sponsors is posted in our lobby, and promoted through our e-newsletters, Facebook, and twitter feed.

This support helps us direct our program funding to new events in the community, to offer tickets for students others with limited resources, and to get the talent that people want to come out to see/hear at Center events.

Each level of support has varied “perks” for your business. Contact us today to discuss what might be the best “fit” for your promotional needs. Call Lynn Anderson, Director of Sales & Operations , at 952-979-1104 or email her at landerson@hopkinsmn.com or contact Jo Clare Hartsig, Membership Engagement Coordinator, at 952-979-1107 or email her at jchartsig@hopkinsmn.com.
