Why support Arcade at the Oasis 2021?

Arcade is getting ready for the second summer of Arcade at the Oasis. Bigger than a building and better than ever, our second venture outdoors will bring audiences joy, laughter, and a sense of community in downtown Pittsburgh where we left it. 

The 2020 season of Arcade at the Oasis:

  • Brought 24 shows to live audiences

  • Showcased 104 local artists 

  • Entertained 555 patrons 

  • Ran from August to November 2020 

From warm Comedy Cookouts, to nights with performers in puffy coats and propane heaters in the audience, the Oasis welcomed the public to a dynamic, reimagined outdoor performing arts space to enjoy improv, stand-up, drag, music, family programming, comedy classes, and more. We can’t wait to get back outside again for 2021 with weekly entertainment, starting April 18th!

How does a sponsorship help Arcade?

Your sponsorship of the Arcade at the Oasis program helps support paying local artists, educators, and producers for performances each and every week this season and will improve our technical setup to bring audiences elevated and affordable outdoor entertainment in the Cultural District. We want to provide the safest environment possible for our artists to return to their craft, and the opportunity for Arcade’s guests to come together for laughter, community, and comfort. This requires an increase in operational expenses for cleaning supplies, safety equipment, costs incurred due to a flexible return policy, and safety signage, all while selling a reduced number of possible seats for patrons during a reduced number of weekly shows from our previous 9 shows each and every week prior to the COVID-19 shutdown. By supporting the Arcade at the Oasis program, you’re supporting innovative, in-person, socially distanced artistic opportunities in your local community during a time when laughter is needed the most.

How does a sponsorship help me or my business? 

By sponsoring Arcade at the Oasis, you and your brand reach a young and diverse audience in a fun, affordable, and accessible atmosphere. We would love to feature your business in a variety of marketing options to show off your business as a supporter of live, outdoor comedy in the Cultural District! There are many perks available for both businesses and individuals that would like to support the program, listed below. The Arcade at the Oasis program and participating sponsors are promoted across the organization’s website, social media platforms, and email marketing each week--not to mention the many in person guests at the Oasis. Arcade’s marketing reach includes:

  • An average of 511 hits per day on our website

  • Social media reach of over 10,000 followers across Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram

  • Dedicated email marketing outreach of over 7,000 constituents

  • Recognized and awarded brands in the area for both Arcade Comedy Theater and our family programming Penny Arcade, which frequently receive press in the community for show and event quality, dedication to the arts, and access to the arts for all ages. As the first arts organization in Pittsburgh to offer an outdoor performance series after the shutdown, Arcade was recognized regularly for the innovative Arcade at the Oasis program. 

We hope you and your company will help support this year’s exciting renewal of outdoor joy, laughter, and community.
