Second Saturdays are made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. This highly competitive arts access grant encourages arts organizations across the state to invest in programming that creates long-term engagement between arts organizations and their communities.

Second Saturdays are also made possible with contributions by sponsor WNB Financial, media sponsor The Water Main, Minnesota Public Radio and Bingo Overbaord sponsor Doug Troke, Farmers Insurance.
