Parties for the Parkway has been the River Parkway Trust's largest public fundraising events program for the last 27 years. Parties for the Parkway is a volunteer-led program that includes the Parties for the Parkway Artists Reception in February, the Parties for the Parkway Kickoff and Art Auction in March, and a plethora of small, medium and large-sized parties throughout the year hosted by community members, businesses and organizations. 

This program is a great opportunity for your business to be seen by River Parkway Trust members and donors who attend parties. The Parties for the Parkway Kickoff event attracts over 400 guests and individual parties that follow attract over 1,000 individual guests. In addition to recognition at events throughout the year, logo recognition in the Parties for the Parkway catalog is a premier opportunity to be seen. Each year over 4,000 of our donors and program participants receive a beautifully designed Parties for the Parkway book in the mail that includes a listing of the current year parties, art, and auction items available for purchase.
