Artspire festival postponed because of COVID-19



One of La Crosse’s newer summer festivals may be rescheduled for late summer or fall, as a result of the spread of coronavirus. 

The 7th annual Artspire event at the Pump House is being postponed indefinitely from its planned date of Saturday, June 13th. 

Artspire features music and other performances, as well as visual art displays, indoors and on the street.

Organizers of Artspire are hoping to have the festival later in the year.   

The very first Artspire in 2014 featured the unveiling of the 3-D mural painted on the west wall of the Pump House.
