Community Partners

From films to books, bands and beer to theater discussions, the diverse array of programming presented by The Friends would not be possible without the commitment of our many community partners. Partners provide the necessary resources to create the quality programming Saint Paul residents have come to expect. Working together, we can reach larger and more engaged audiences.

Interested in partnering with The Friends on an upcoming project or program?
