Dear Spring Fête Supporter,

With the safety and well-being of our valued donors, volunteers, vendors, and staff at the forefront of our thinking and planning, we have decided to postpone the Ordway 2020 Spring Fête that was scheduled for April 18, to coincide with the broadcast of the 2020 Tony Awards®.

Last year the Spring Fête generated over $560,000 for Ordway arts education programs as well as the great work of the Arts Partnership. This annual event is more than just a glamorous evening, it is a night that is vital to the continuation of our mission and vision.

Dress to impress and walk the red carpet into the Ordway Concert Hall for a special live screening of the 2020 Tony Awards®. Enjoy Broadway-themed cocktails, gourmet hors d’oeuvres, and live music as you and your friends experience the Tonys like never before. Bragging rights (and fabulous prizes!) are on the line as you vie with fellow guests to predict the winners and demonstrate your Broadway knowledge. Spend commercial breaks bidding on silent auction items, laughing, playing games, and soaking in the glamour. Revel in the magic of Broadway and enjoy a night full of friends, food, and a celebration of musical theater.

Previously purchased passes will automatically be transferred into the rescheduled event. If you are unable to attend, please consider converting your purchase to a tax-deductible donation to further support the Ordway, or contact me, Annie Deering, at or 651-282-3101 to request a refund.

The coronavirus outbreak gripping the nation is a time for reflection on the needs of our community and the ways we can collaborate to support one another. Deepest thanks again for your thoughtful and generous support during this uncertain time.

With all best wishes,


Thank you Ordway 2020 Spring Fête Sponsors
