GOLDEN Backstage Pass

Celebrating 19 Years of Shunpike!

Join us on Thursday, November 19th at 5:00 pm at GOLDEN Backstage Pass, a virtual fundraiser for Shunpike.

We Do our Best Work Behind the Scenes
Shunpike has been proudly serving Washington's arts community for nearly two decades. During a year of unanticipated challenges to our creative ecosystem, we are more motivated than ever to help artists thrive and explore sustainable avenues for producing and sharing their work. In order for us to continue providing equitable support, resources, and opportunities to our region's creators, we rely on support from you.

Help Us Reach our $60k Goal

Our online auction is live! Bid on a variety of items, including a 3-day cabin stay in the picturesque Methow Valley, a vacation package to the historic city of Merida, Mexico (valid for 2 years!), and private studio tour with artist Joseph Steininger.

Tune in to GOLDEN Backstage Pass

As much as we wish we could celebrate with you in person this year, we're excited to give you an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at some of the artists we support and the initiatives we have in store. We'll showcase the #PoweredbyShunpike community through performances and conversations with artists and local leaders.
