Spanspek Music & Arts Festival

Past Special Program

We are sad to hear Spanspek Music & Art Festival have had their last hurrah in September.

From Spanspek's Facebook Page
The Last Spanspek - September 16th, 2017 You read right folks. After 12 years of bringing local music and art to Cutler-Orosi, we will be holding the final Spanspek Music and Arts Festival on September 16, 2017 (sorry in advance to all the Canelo Alvarez fans out there). It's a pretty big deal. It's a decision that wasn't made lightly. However, we do feel that it's the right thing to do. Music is our first love. We initially started Spanspek so that we could perform our own music in our hometown. Since that time it has grown to become a singular event that has helped us form long lasting friendships, experience incredible music and art, and even contribute to the college educations of a few Orosi High School students. It's been amazing, but it has nevertheless become an all encompassing effort. Though we love Spanspek and the community it has fostered, we want to dedicate ourselves fully to our original and new passions. All that said, don't expect Spanspek to fully go away. We still plan on promoting the occasional show, with proceeds continuing to fund OHS scholarships. And if there's anyone out there that's wants to take the reigns or start something completely new that supports local music and art, rest assured we'll be happy to provide advice and guidance. It's been a wild and wonderful experience. We'll be sad to see it end. But we'll be happy as hell to celebrate with you all one last time on September 16th.

Founded in 2006, the Spanspek Music and Arts Festival brings locally created visual and performing arts to the community of Cutler-Orosi, CA

In sharing the works of Valley artists, the festival hopes to encourage the youth of Cutler-Orosi and Tulare County to pursue their own artistic endeavors, thereby fostering the continued growth of the Valley's artistic community.

All festival proceeds benefit a number of programs, including:
  • The Spanspek Festival Scholarship Fund, which provides grants to Orosi High School seniors majoring in an artistic discipline.
  • Artist Commissions, in which proceeds from the festival go towards commissions of new work from local artists, which are displayed at every years festival.
  • Community Concerts, in which local bands are invited to perform for free at intimate venues in Tulare County (conducted in conjunction with Step Up Tulare County).
Please continue to donate so Spanspek can make their final farewell memorable! For more information on the Spanspek Music and Arts Festival, please visit, email [email protected], or watch this video.
