How to Sponsor

What began as a small event with a dozen artists and 200 attendees has grown into an art extravaganza; complete with over 1000 annual attendees, dozens of professional artists painting along the trail, crafts for children, art hikes, goat grazings, food trucks, and numerous info and activity booths organized by local non-profits.


Friends of the Bluff is a 501(c)3 organization so all donations are tax-deductible. We will also credit 100% of in-kind donations toward your sponsorship level.

The event has many financial needs. We have divided them into three sponsorship levels below.

Event Planning and Promotion

The Premier Event Sponsor is essentially assuming responsibility for the largest event expense: the planning and execution of Brush on the Bluff. This beloved community event involves hundreds of hours of planning and organizing to bring it to life. Any sponsor who contributes at this level is supporting the total production of the event, helping to ensure Brush on the Bluff will return year after year.

Event Details Are Coming Soon!

For now, last year's details and video will give you a sense of what to expect

Watch Artists Paint the Bluff's Scenery

Dozens of professional local artists will be spaced out along the bluff (all within half a mile of Polly Judd Park) to paint the scenery around them. Friends of the Bluff will provide maps to their locations so visitors can take a short stroll and observe the artists in action.


Visit Healing Hooves’ 200 Goats

Every year, Friends of the Bluff hires a herd of goats to lessen fire risk on the bluff by reducing brush and tree sapling density. The goats also help with noxious weeds and invasive brush. Attendees are encouraged to watch the goats in action, but please, do not touch the electric fence, do not feed the goats, & keep dogs on leash.

Art Workshops at Polly Judd

Greenplay Northwest (an outdoor early education center located at the base of the bluff) will be on hand to lead nature-themed art activities for kids all day. These activities will include painting rocks, a floral bookmark craft, sidewalk chalk, nature bracelets, and more.

Art Hike for Families (Limited spots, preregistration required)

Take a short walk into the woods with Marit Fischer before settling in on your blankets for a grounding and mindfulness exercise. This will be followed by a brief lesson on the basic principles of drawing and an opportunity for the children to share their work. 

Food Trucks

Feast World Kitchen brings delicious global cuisine to Spokane while supporting and empowering our former refugees and immigrants, helping to weave them into the fabric of our civic life. FWK will provide two cuisine options; Thai from Chef Tom Binyo & Venezuelan Caribbean from Chef Patricia.

What does this event support?

Brush on the Bluff is completely free to the public, but donations are greatly appreciated and help ensure that we're able to continue the event in the future. The proceeds of this event are split between three groups. The artists receive 50% of whatever their artwork earns during the auction. The remaining proceeds are split between the event organizers, Friends of the Bluff and The Botanical Alchemists. You can learn more about how the money will be used below.

Friends of the Bluff's Projects

Goat Grazing Events
200 goats visit the bluff to eat the dry brush and invasive species that help wildfires spread quickly.


Lop and Scatter Events
Trained volunteers remove low-hanging limbs and thin out densely forested areas.


Heavy Machinery Rentals
For some work, a chipper or other heavy-duty equipment must be rented.

The Botanical Alchemist's Projects

Sarah Edwards and Ava Barany of the Botanical Alchemists will be offering a three-part, seasonal, free-to-the-public Community Nature Art Workshop Series, seeking to engage people of all ages in Spokane. This workshop series will give participants the opportunity to explore the amazing botanical variety of beautiful Spokane and use it to create ephemeral art.

At each session, participants will create a personal artwork and then join in the creation of a large community collaborative project. Individual artworks will range in size from a few inches to a few feet, while the collaborative projects will reach 7-10 feet across. The works will then be left for the public to discover in their wanderings. A gallery show documenting the workshops, artwork, and the public’s role in creating the pieces will culminate the series.
