We are hosting a silent auction and benefit to fundraise for our 34th Annual Accordion Kings & Queens (AKQ) Concert at the Miller Outdoor Theatre on June 3rd.

This year, we are inviting businesses and organizations to partner with us to fundraise for AKQ in a silent auction fundraising event planned to take place May 19th, 2023. Since the onset of the pandemic, our program has faced budget cuts of 50%, and this auction will help to make up for funding gaps so we are able to ensure the most memorable and meaningful cultural event for the Houston community.


To thank you for your generous support through your in-kind donation, we can offer your organization unique exposure opportunities. We will market this fundraiser and auction sponsors across our social media platforms and newsletter subscribers, a combined audience of over 10,000 constituents. We will also feature your support of our silent auction fundraiser during the Accordion Kings & Queens Concert, which has an average historical audience of over 4,000 people annually. We can also offer tickets to the Accordion Kings & Queens Concert taking place June 3 at the Miller Outdoor Theatre and volunteer opportunities at the event for your staff if that is of interest to your business (limited tickets available).

Please confirm your participation by May 5th, 2023.

Thank you for taking the time to consider our organization’s request. Texas Folklife has offered public arts and community programming in Houston and across Texas since 1984. We hope you will join us in an exciting evening of great Texas accordion roots music and celebrate what makes the local community resilient and unique!
