Spirit of the Arts was established to support the arts and humanities. We produce shows, concerts, festivals and the like. We work hand in hand with a wonderful company called Vendor Finders USA, LLC and just formed a new company "SOTA Productions and Consulting" to produce events that benefit of our company and for other non profits struggling stay afloat.
We have been around for over 10 years. Now, staffed with people eager to get things moving, we are excited to be able to move forward for the benefit of many.
As we move forward with our mission, new markets continue to open up. We are gaining recognition as a production company capable of producing all types of events. From multi-day music festivals to a variety of craft, food, educational and cultural events.
We provide top quality entertainment events for our own organization as well as for other nonprofits and for profit companies. It is always our goal to create high quality and affordable events for our neighbors and associates.
Our most recent commitment is to American Veterans and the organizations that support them. Many fundraising events are scheduled and will be posted soon.
This year we are also promoting the Wayne Lions Club and their many philanthropic events.
