This marks the 15th consecutive year the organization has had a surplus, bringing the accumulated cash total to $394,098.

During this season, The Grand employed 231 people, spent $1,319,526 on what is described as local goods and services, and hosted 213 performances, bringing over 100,000 people to the downtown core.
