For our final SPONSOR SPOTLIGHT for the 2016 event, Handmade Arcade would like to acknowledge four long-time sponsors whose contributions of support have helped to shape and bolster Handmade Arcade into the highly-anticipated event that is has become.

Pennsylvania Council on the Arts: Celebrating 50 years, the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts fosters excellence, diversity, and vitality of the arts through their extensive grant programs. These programs broaden the availability and appreciation of the arts throughout the state. PCA has given funding to Handmade Arcade for nearly all of our 13 years. Thank you!

The Sprout Fund: Making our region a better place to live, work, play, and raise a family, The Sprout Fund is Pittsburgh’s leading agency in supporting innovative ideas and catalyzing community change. Their programming and project support is responsible for so many amazing events. Handmade Arcade began with a Seed Award in 2004 and has been supported nearly every year since by The Sprout Fund. Their on-going sponsorship has allowed us to add interactive programming such as our Hands-on Handmade activity area. Thank you!

Port Authority: Not just a hub of public transportation, but also a supporter of our community. Port Authority plays an increasingly significant role in economic development efforts and community vitality within Pittsburgh and throughout Allegheny County communities. Their transportation services connect people to events, community, and life. Every year, Port Authority underwrites our full-page ad in the City Paper AND transports shoppers to Handmade Arcade. Thank you! 

Yelp: Search for everything from the city’s tastiest burger to the most renowned cardiologist. Yelp is the best way to find great businesses in Pittsburgh! What will you uncover in your neighborhood? Thank you to Yelp for having Handmade Arcade as a Weekly Yelp Sponsor. Visit the Yelp table at Handmade Arcade for more information. Thank you!

Every year, Handmade Arcade is humbled by the support and generosity of our sponsors. Please take the time to visit their websites and discover the work they are doing in our region. Pittsburgh is an amazing place to live, work, play, and craft. We are overjoyed every day to part of the city’s growth. Thank you!
