Festival Deer Productions is organized under the 501(c)(3) tax code classified as a charitable organization.
Formed in 2015 FDP produced Sacramento's biggest all local music and arts festival called First Festival in 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018. We have also produced many local music shows including the MICRO Music Festival at the 2018 PARK(ing) Day in Downtown Sacramento.
FDP operates exclusively to advance arts, music, and public service by curating events that showcase art, visual performances, and music performances with a focus on underrepresented groups such as minorities and women. We support the collaborative construction of arts focused events; facilitate access to such events to underrepresented groups and individuals from challenged economic backgrounds.
We also provide volunteer opportunities at events in trained positions that will provide for the ability to include valuable skill sets on a resume for future jobs such as supervisor, team management, and customer service experience. We perform community outreach and establish community relationships to further the mission of advancing arts and music in the community by providing support, either monetarily or through supplying volunteers, to other groups and events that share our common goal.
While we are not currently producing events, we are currently raising funds in the community by participating in various fundraising events so that we can provide Micro Music & Arts Grants to the music and arts community.
In the past we have produced and organized the following:
