“Awarding Recognition and Expressing Appreciation
of Our Local Performing Artists”

The Forté Awards is a registered Benefit Corporation

Our mission is to produce an annual awards show and gala fund raising event.  The 2016 Forté Awards is a homegrown group of people who have a passion for and a devotion to the local performing arts communities in Music, Theater, Dance, and Comedy.  We feel this is also the perfect opportunity to show our support and appreciation for three of our local charities, The Food Bank of Northern Nevada, The Nevada Humane Society, and The Veterans Resource Centers of America.  While all the glory goes to our performers, the profits go to the charities.

“An event that captures the heart and passion of our area’s wealth of talent and lets it all loose on this one night of glamour and excitement”
