FundRaising the Dead

Since October 2019

Support The Ypsilanti Performance Space’s Restoration Project

The YPSI is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization
and flourishes with your generosity.

By attending Holy Bones, you’re helping to breathe life into a forthcoming center for celebration and revelry. The Ypsilanti Performance Space (The YPSI) is housed in a former church in Downtown Ypsilanti, Michigan. Renovations began in 2018, but the Covid-19 pandemic severely impacted the ability to continue the much needed work turning this historic building into Ypsi’s newest performance venue. The festival aims to raise funds to complete the remaining restoration projects and help fully open the doors to the public as soon as possible.

What is Holy Bones All About?

Our mission is to craft an immersive experience for creative souls from all walks of life, death, and everything in between. 

Holy Bones is An annual festival and fundraiser in Ypsilanti, MI, held in October each year, featuring local artisans, performers, food, and more.

Helping to breathe life into a former church in Downtown Ypsilanti, Michigan.

    In April 2018, renovations began on the former First Congregational United Church of Christ. Our vision to create a welcoming music, wedding and cultural space was underway. The Ypsilanti Performance Space (The YPSI) is a forthcoming center for celebration and revelry. Upon completion, the building will boast nearly 20,000 square feet of flexible space and offer high-quality performances, enriching programs and a non-denominational wedding ceremony and reception hall. Everyone is welcome at The YPSI and we hope you will join us when we open our doors. The YPSI is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and flourishes with your generosity.
