The Production Alliance

Building Community Through Celebration

The Production Alliance

The Production Alliance’s mission is to create joy, inspire engagement, and build resilient communities by leading collaborative partnerships to create dynamic and inclusive celebrations and initiatives.

Established in June 2019, The Production Alliance will build upon the successful foundation of Thunderbull Productions and work to uphold cultural traditions and strengthen resiliency through inclusive, annual gatherings that celebrate community and improve quality of life in Jefferson County.

In partnership with StrongerTowns, The Production Alliance is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Sponsorships, donations, in-kind services and goods are tax deductible. Contact us to learn more.

Our goal in 2021 is to unify new and established celebrations under one cohesive identity—The Production Alliance—so that the whole can be greater than the sum of its parts. It’s our hope that this coalescence will inspire a sense of ownership among community members and collaborators, thus enabling The Production Alliance to bring new concepts to fruition with fresh energy and enthusiasm.

The Production Alliance upholds cultural heritage and "sense of place" as conduits for positive social change and improved quality of life on Washington's Quimper Peninsula.

We strive to be an asset in our community by facilitating intergenerational mentorship, resource sharing, sustainable practices, and broadscale volunteerism.
