SAN DIEGO, Calif., (May 14, 2014) -- San Diego County Credit Union® (SDCCU®), San Diego’s largest locally owned financial institution, is the presenting sponsor of the 18th Annual North Park Festival of Arts. More than 40,000 people are expected to attend the event, held along University near 30th St., which is packed full with entertainment and activities from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 17, 2014.
“SDCCU is committed to enhancing the communities where we live, work and play and is proud to present the North Park Festival of Arts. With our flagship branch located in the ‘sdccu.com Tower’ on University Ave., we are excited to bring together San Diegans from across the county to support culture and the arts and all of the great offerings of the eclectic and hip neighborhood of North Park,” said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Halleck.
The North Park Branch opened its doors earlier this year, providing a convenient location for a large number of customers in the area to attain breakthrough banking products. The Branch occupies the first floor of a high-rise office building at 3180 University Ave. Ste. 100, dubbed the “sdccu.com Tower.” The building has a unique exterior lighting display designed to embrace North Park’s Arts District and rightfully so with the Forbes Magazine designation as one of America’s Top Hippest Hipster neighborhoods.
“We are thrilled to have SDCCU in North Park and the tower is now a gateway to the North Park Arts District,” said Executive Director of North Park Main Street Angela Landsberg. “With a focus on the community and giving back, the relationship between SDCCU and North Park Main Street was a natural one and sponsorship of the North Park Festival of Arts was an ideal fit.”
The all-day festival will feature local art, exciting live music and dance performances, eco-friendly activities, a variety of shopping opportunities, great food and dozens of vendor booths, including one hosted by SDCCU. There will also be a hands-on Kids Art Block, providing kids the opportunity to participate in interactive activities designed to stimulate and inspire their imaginations and create their own masterpieces.
Event proceeds benefit North Park Main Street, the non-profit organization committed to the revitalization of the North Park Improvement District.
