We will be closed July 4-8 Details

We’re open! And you’re invited! The newly renovated Springboard for the Arts in Saint Paul is open, with a large Community Hall and front yard ready for community to share, create connections, and spread joy. We also encourage uses of our spaces as a platform for supporting the visibility and economic opportunity of artists and the neighboring communities. We are excited to host – and see you host – events, workshops, and gatherings at our friendly and colorful new home on University Avenue. 

If you want to rent the Springboard site for your event, you are welcome to do that! We offer our Community Hall, front yard, and rooftop for rental for private and public events, meetings, and gatherings. See fees and more details below, and use the linked form below to submit a site use request. We'll be back to you within 3 business days about your request. We prioritize bookings a month out, if your request is sooner than that, we prioritize events that happen from Monday-Friday, 10AM to 5PM, in order to ensure staffing.
