Chicken Tractor is very excited to host our third annual Microgrant Dinner! Tickets sell out fast. That's a fact.

Five nominated artists give five minute presentations to the arts supporters who buy tickets to the dinner. Attendees then vote for the project they want to see funded. At the end of the night, we tally the votes, announce the winner and write a check. We guarantee that one artist will be funded, but each year we have had members of the audience step forward to fund something they are excited about. Last year, three out of the five projects received funding!

This year's Microgrant Dinner has been generously underwritten by the Des Moines Arts Festival ®, and received support from Moberg Gallery, Olson Larsen Galleries, Visionary Services, and Beeline + Blue. Chicken Tractor is proud to receive operational support from Bravo of Greater Des Moines.
