North Idaho College's campus hosts the annual Art on the Green each summer, and SPR plans to join the fun Aug. 3-5. The SPR booth will have ticket giveaways, free drawstring backpacks for kids, crafts, and freebies.

Art on the Green is a celebration of art and community in the northwest. Taking place solely on the old Fort Sherman grounds on campus, it has become a marketplace and performance space. More than 135 visual artists take part, and many regional performers take the stages -- many have been heard in recent years on KPBX.

Spokane Public Radio will host an exclusive showing of Yellow Submarine on Wednesday, August 8 at the Bing Crosby Theatre. This special evening begins with a live taping of Movies 101 at 6:30pm before the film begins at 7:30pm.

SPR would like to meet you at the Fall Arts Preview before the Spokane Symphony's free Labor Day Concert on Monday, September 3.  Stop by the Spokane Public Radio table anytime 4-7 p.m. in Comstock Park to enter a drawing for free tickets to see George Winston on September 30 at the Fox.

Staff, board members, and volunteers for the station love meeting with visitors and talking about what's coming up on the air, events, and our ongoing news and arts coverage.

The Season Preview is organized by the Spokane Folklore Society, giving performing arts groups in the region an opportunity to connect with those who believe in the importance of the arts.

The free concert starts at 6 p.m. The Spokane Symphony Orchestra has a tradition of playing parts of Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture, Sousa's Stars and Stripes Forever, among favorites from the world of pop, Hollywood and Broadway to highlight the upcoming season.

The next free KPBX Kids' Concert will be October 6 at 1 p.m. at River Park Square. This concert will feature The Willows with a folk tribute to the protest movement of the 60s through the music of Peter, Paul and Mary.

Spokane Public Radio does things a little differently than other public radio stations. We were founded on the mission of incorporating the local arts and arts organizations into what we do every day.

Flagship station KPBX holds eight free family concerts a year to introduce kids to a wide variety of music. Each February, we host the biggest sale of vintage vinyl and other music items at the Recordings & Videos Sale. Each fall, in partnership with the Spokane Folklore Society's Fall Folk Fest, we organize and broadcast live performances in a two-hour concert from the campus of Spokane Community College.

In addition to these annual treats, we thank our volunteers and underwriters each year with an event at a community venue, and produce many special events. We've had evenings with public radio reporters and hosts such as Cokie Roberts, Paula Poundstone and Zorba Paster.

Our mission wouldn't be complete without regular live performances from our own broadcast studios, along with our annual forums held at City Hall.

With the help of more than 300 volunteers, 30 staff and community producers, and you, our listeners, Spokane Public Radio has become a place where the community turns for live and on-air arts and cultural experiences.
