...and we hope you can join us!
April in Minnesota means warmer temps, hints of green – and our signature COMPAS fundraiser, Arts & Crafts! Arts & Crafts is a unique family friendly event that showcases COMPAS artists alongside Minnesota’s amazing craft breweries & distilleries.
Our 2015 fundraiser last May was a big success, raising more than $20,000 to support creative education across Minnesota. We're looking for more people to join us on April 23, 2016 so we can double our impact!
In addition to tastings of more than 40 local craft beers and spirits, Arts & Crafts will feature COMPAS artists Frank Sentwali, Victor Yepez, and Christopher Lutter-Gardella, as well as COMPAS partners Bailey Rae Mosaics, and Chicks on Sticks. We’ll have live music from acclaimed artist Lissie, plus local favorites Candid Kid.
The Arts & Crafts host committee has been hard at work putting together a fun-filled event. We decided to check in with them to see what they are most excited about for Arts & Crafts:
“I am looking forward to a day of fun, supporting a wonderful local arts organization while enjoying some of the best craft beers and spirits in Minnesota!” – Becky Machamer
“I can’t wait to try great local beers and connect with other supporters of COMPAS’ important work!” – Courtney Poja
“As a Northeast Minneapolis resident, I’m excited to try some of our newest breweries and distilleries, like Able Seedhouse + Brewery, plus revisit some long-time favorites like Indeed Brewing. All while checking out awesome local artists and musicians, and supporting a great cause!” – Amanda Hiatt
At COMPAS, we believe creativity is best learned by doing, so you will have an opportunity to create as well! We’ll have art projects that the whole family can enjoy.
We hope you can join us as we showcase amazing Minnesota artists, musicians, brewers, distillers and food trucks.
