Proceeds from Fandango Americana will help re-construct the Westside Ventura icon, Art City. This innovative collective of artists has been part of the community since 1985. Art City has recently undergone great struggle, having to tear down most of its existing building structures in order to comply with code enforcement in the City of Ventura. Many people, businesses and cultural organizations of the region, including the City, are supportive of Art City Inventura in its efforts. We hope to initially raise $25,000 in the next 90 days. The funds from this kickoff benefit will be used to abate remaining code issues and to begin rebuilding for the next phase of invention. While more funds will be needed to grow Art City to its fullest potential in the next several years, many fellow artists, patrons and supporters look forward to your help in making this one of Ventura’s most memorable musical and cultural events.
Please respect our West Ventura neighbors on street parking. We encourage ride sharing.
