Each June we celebrate the latest round of Rocket Grants Award recipients with a public ceremony. We choose a space outside of mainstream arts venues to reflect the non-traditional spaces the projects in this program are asked to inhabit. The following venues have hosted Awards Ceremonies:

2010 The Rose Garden Room in Loose Park, Kansas City
2011 Lakeside Nature Center in Swope Park, Kansas City
2012 Just-Off Broadway Community Theater, Kansas City
