August 18, 7-10PM
@ The Dillon
Help us keep SPARKcon big, weird, and FREE! Join us for SPARKball, the first ever fundraiser for the Triangle's creativity festival, SPARKcon!
This glitzy and fun evening will include beverages, food, dancing, and a ton of SPARKcon themed events. The festival's 14 creative disciplines will preview activities they have planned for SPARKcon 2018, including on-demand poetry, face painting, circus performances, musical performances, and dance-offs! Each of these activities offer you a chance to support your favorite SPARK. Activity costs range from $1 to $5.
For 13 years now, SPARKcon has transformed downtown Raleigh into a creative playground featuring 2000+ artists, 200+ talent showcases. This open-source, noncommercial creativity palooza was attended by 84,000+ people last year for absolutely FREE! And that's just how we want it to be, but we need your help.
Attire: creative SPARKcon-themed ensembles encouraged! Wear your weirdest, SPARK-iest duds and you could win a PRIZE!
Location: The 9th floor terrace of The Dillon ( 223 S West Street, Raleigh)
SPARKcon is VAE Raleigh's gift to our community - but it does not come without a heavy price tag. Permits, security, port-a-potties- that stuff adds up! It is only with the support of our grantors, sponsors, and AWESOME individuals like you that we can continue to produce this giant creativity showcase. SPARKball is the first ever SPARKcon fundraiser and your chance to show your support and make sure this event remains free and open to everyone for years to come!
Exciting news! Official SPARKcon t-shirts are available this year, and if you bundle yours with your ticket to SPARKball you'll save $5! AND if that's not enough, if you purchase your shirt + SPARKball bundle by August 2, you can pick up your shirt at the party-- a full month before anyone else!
