Those who keep an eye on the culture of Spokane know that there are more homegrown events popping up around town than any one person could possibly attend. This is an excellent thing.

Not so excellent for some first-time event organizers, however, is the steep learning curve that comes along with putting on a party. You need to know what you can and can't do with your event. And most likely, you will need some permits.

Thankfully, Spokane Arts is coming to the rescue tonight with a panel discussion entitled "Let's Put on a Show" featuring representatives from the Washington State Liquor Control Board, the Spokane Police Department, the Spokane Fire Department, parks department, and Spokane city permitting office. Think of it as one-stop shopping for all your need-to-knows.

In our Ideas Issue this winter, writer Leah Sottile, who also produces our Volume music festival and knows a thing or two about putting on a show, suggested something like what's happening tonight to get the cultural community all on the same page . Well, ask and you shall receive. This is a solid and efficient step to making it easier for grassroots arts groups to get off the ground without the trial-by-fire experience most events encounter upon starting up.

The event, which is part of the excellent and ongoing monthly Cultivate Spokane Salon series, kicks off tonight at 6 pm at the Bartlett.

Also, if you're putting on any sort of event, we want to know about it for our calendar. Here's where you give us the low-down on your show, party, knitting circle, mustache sculpting contest, etc.
