Save the Grape Bowl
Lodi’s stadium, built in 1940 as a Works Progress Administration (WPA) project, has been a center of sporting life in Lodi for decades. Many Lodians have fond memories of their time at the Grape Bowl. The stadium, however, needs renovations to meet modern standards. Some work has already taken place, other work is underway, but more work is needed.

Lodi Arts Foundation
Helping arts and culture grow in Lodi takes funding and careful administration. Here's where the Lodi Arts Foundation steps up. We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, working to support the goals and objectives of the Arts Commission. The Arts Foundation:
- Funds Arts Commission programs ̶ partly or entirely ̶̶ through private, state, and federal grants and our fundraising efforts. We write grant proposals and we staff fundraising activities ̶̶ such as The Blues and Brews Festival and the Arts Foundation Pub ̶̶ where we sell refreshments at Arts Commission events.
- Provides financial administration for the arts and cultural programs we have funded.
We always welcome help from members of our community who want to make a difference in bringing the arts and culture to our fair city. You can make a tax-deductible donation to foster the Arts in Lodi. And maybe you'd enjoy becoming a member of our Arts Foundation?
