City of San Marcos Arts and Cultural Funding

Our vision for San Marcos is a city in which artistic excellence is celebrated, supported and available to all. The mission of the San Marcos Arts Commission is to promote tourism in San Marcos by enriching our city and its diverse cultural heritage by supporting works of artistic excellence, advancing arts education and strengthening the arts in the community while promoting local tourism and the convention industry. The appointed commission provides oversight for the expenditure of city Hotel Occupancy Tax (HOT Tax) and general funds for the promotion of the arts. 

Funds are available for  projects that promote or enhance the arts in San Marcos. Projects must also enhance tourism to our community.
