September 1 - October 3, 2020

You can run/walk/treadmill/bike across 5K and support the ARTS!! #VirtualArts5K

The coronavirus pandemic has dealt a huge blow to the arts sector as a whole. Many of our arts professionals have been out of work for months, and without additional funding sources, we may see a mass exodus out of the creative industry. 

 

For the safety of all our runners and interactive arts partners, this year's Frisco Arts Walk and Run is completely virtual, culminating with an online Finisher's Fest celebration on October 3rd, 2020 on Facebook and YouTube. The Finisher's Fest will include performances by our local musicians, dancers, vocalists, and even an online art sale by our community's visual artists. 

 

Funds raised from the Virtual Frisco Arts Walk and Run will go towards:

  • An Emergency Relief Artists Fund

  • Arts Organization Grants

  • Youth Scholarships 

Frisco Arts believes that the arts are essential to rebuild, inspire, and bring communities together. It is more important than ever to make sure that the arts stay alive, and we need your help!

Virtual Finishers Fest

On October 3rd, enjoy a Virtual Finishers Fest with performances from our talented arts community, including:

  • Nutcracker dancers from Collin County Ballet Theatre

  • Singer/songwriters from Melody of Hope

  • Instrumentalists and ensembles of all ages
