Salida Soup is a monthly community-based potluck where participants, through this microgranting dinner, assist a variety of projects in the Upper Arkansas River Valley.

Join us each month for the evolution of fundraising. Bring a potluck item and a $5 donation to be eligible to vote on the evening’s presentations. As a diner, you will hear five-minute pitches from community members who need funding for projects that are beneficial to the community. Enjoy food, drink, art and music, then choose the winning proposal to receive the evenings donations.

Salida Soup is held at the SteamPlant Event Center Ballroom at 220 West Sackett Avenue in Salida, Colorado. Salida Soup is brought to you through a partnership with the Salida Creative District.
