Will You Help Us Revive Live!

The Van Wert Area Performing Arts Foundation is pleased to announce that campaign Revive Live has begun. Artists and performers from around the world will once again bring their talents and trades to a Van Wert Live stage to entertain, educate and inspire.

“We look ahead to a time of great energy and enthusiasm as we safely return to the people and moments that we hold dear,” states VWAPAF Chairman Gary Taylor.

The VWAPAF Board and Van Wert Live staff have processes in place so that the community can once again engage in making live entertainment events happen. Statewide Ford-Lincoln has set the pace by becoming the first 2021 Entertainment Sponsor. Owners, Brad Greve and Andy Czajkowski know that their financial support goes directly to drastically discounting the ticket prices for patrons so it is affordable for families. The Revive Live campaign is used to reconnect the Van Wert Live team with those who are ready to be part of the vision to make the arts safe, accessible, affordable, and enjoyable for all.

“Over 250,000 people have chosen Van Wert as their entertainment destination. Ensuring that their experience is one that demands a return takes more than the Van Wert Live staff,” shared Executive Director, Tafi Stober. 

Being part of Revive Live is for everyone. The organization is providing an opportunity for interest and input in the following key areas of support and engagement: Memberships, Sponsorships, Volunteering, and Marketing. An online form is being used to provide this communication of interest. Anyone interested in plugging into the Revive Live Campaign and working with the Van Wert Live staff is encouraged to fill out the ENGAGE FORM.


“Reviving Live is about rebuilding the community around the belief that live music and entertainment has a life-changing impact on society and mental health,” adds Stober. “Bringing back entertainment is more than the music. It’s also about the relationships and the ability to witness the power of community teamwork in action. Everyone plays a part in the arts and we look forward to reconnecting.”

The Van Wert Area Performing Arts Foundation presenting Van Wert Live events is a supporting organization powered by the Van Wert County Foundation. VWLive Headquarters and Box Office are located at the Niswonger Performing Arts Center, 10700 SR 118 S, Van Wert, OH. For more information contact 419-238-6722 or email [email protected].
