PRONK! is proud to partner with local organizations!

In collaboration with artist Beth Nixon, Pronk! has once again received RISCA funds to support artist + community group partnerships that will result in fabulous parade visuals that delighted PRONK fans. These visuals will have life beyond our festival, as organizations are able to continue using the work created with PRONK artists as part of non-PRONK organizational events!
