Support Our Community Living Room Through This Difficult Time

About the Project

We will gather again.

Coming together is really at the core of what we do. In addition to presenting over 100 FREE arts and entertainment programs and events year round, SSTCi's essence these last 15 years has been to create a welcoming space for all---a "community living room" in the heart of Downtown Silver Spring. Sadly, that has become a challenge for many of us at this time, but we are doing what we can to keep each other connected and anticipating our return to our usual hustle and bustle---the free vibrant activities that many of you have come to know and love.

We are proud of the SSTCi community that we have nurtured over the years. We know that "connection" is more important than ever and so are the arts and cultural programs that we showcase for the community year-round. Our 100+ events include our annual Silver Spring Blues Festival, which we just had to sadly call off due to government mandates protecting public health. Our Blues Festival is our largest event, as well as our largest source of revenue through sponsorship and vendor income making up over 20% of our overall annual income. So we especially need your support at this critical time.

Our other face-to-face gatherings are also put on hold, however we are creating as many virtual interactive ways for us all to remain connected through rich and vibrant arts and cultural programming to help heal the mind, body & soul.

With our mission, Silver Spring Town Center Inc. educates, entertains, and inspires residents of all ages by activating public spaces with arts and cultural events that embrace the region’s diversity and build community connections.

We need your support now -- more than ever before. And, the good news is, your investment will be matched dollar for dollar going twice as far to help us do all that we do. We are grateful for your support! Thank you!
