Pledge to Sponsor


Thank you to the hundreds of SPUR members from all over the Bay Area that came out to mingle at our three Member Parties this summer!


The SPUR Member Parties reach across the Bay Area, bringing together a community of urbanists to celebrate city life — and SPUR! Our wildly popular parties offer a unique opportunity to meet and interact with SPUR’s diverse and engaged membership of over 6,000 individuals, businesses and civic organizations.

Check out photos from all three parties:
