The Broadway District is at risk of having to cancel all 2021 events without your support. These events fund On Broadway and the programming we bring to the district. You can prevent this and help provide some happiness to our community by making a tax-deductible contribution to restore our professional event staff lost during the pandemic, and keep our investment in the Broadway District alive.

On Broadway has been at the center of the Broadway District’s revitalization for 25 years. A once unkempt and neglected district in the heart of downtown Green Bay emerged as one of our community’s most beloved neighborhoods filled with boutiques, restaurants, public art, and special events.
On Broadway is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to the care of the Broadway District. We are a designated Wisconsin Main Street community that follows the four major tenants of downtown revitalization: economic vitality, design, organization, and promotion.
At the heart of promotion are nearly 60 events coordinated by a professional event staff employed by On Broadway. Special events are designed to complement the priority areas of main street development to curate a special space where people want to invest their time. Events help create the vibe of our district and attract 400,000 people every year which in turn support our small businesses.
If you have attended any of the following events, you have invested in the success of the Broadway District:
· Farmers’ Market on Broadway
· Fire over the Fox
· igNight Market
· Taste on Broadway
· Winter Wine & Beer Walk
· Fall Fest
· Levitt AMP Music Series
· And more!
94% of On Broadway’s budget is funded by special events and the sponsorships that support them. The impact of covid has forced the cancellation of all events with the exception of a significantly modified farmers’ market. We budget annually to lose a few events, but nobody could have foreseen the possibly of losing almost an entire year’s worth of revenue.
Income generated from special events is what supports our organization including the programs we deploy to help make Broadway the special place you have come to know and love. We want to continue making an impact in our community, but we need your help to do so.
Proceeds from events in 2020 would have funded the necessary event staff to coordinate and execute events in 2021. Our savings has been lost without revenue in 2020 and the sad reality is without your help there will be no events in 2021.
We typically start planning for our large-scale community events at least six months in advance. That is the planning cycle of events. Simply put, we cannot hire staff if we do not have the funds to pay them.
Our goal is to raise $100,000. $75,000 will be raised through corporate sponsorships and grants. We are asking the community – those who have participated in and benefitted from our events – to dig deep and help contribute to the long-term success of the Broadway District and the recovery of our special events so that you may come back to enjoy them once again.
If your organization is interested in a making a larger contribution by sponsoring one of our events or program initiatives, please contact Brian Johnson at (920) 569-3405 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
