The Champaign-Urbana Folk and Roots Festival is coming on October 18-20, 2018! We are super-excited for our tenth anniversary year and ready to welcome new festival-goers and returning fans.  The purpose of this GoFundMe project is to support the many free, family-friendly musical and storytelling performances, hand-on workshops, dance lessons, jam sessions, children’s activities, and singalongs we offer. As always, all festival programming on Saturday, October 20, until 5:00pm is free. We are able to keep the festival accessible in this manner through generous support from individuals, businesses, and the City of Urbana. Can we count you among our supporters?

Donors to this campaign qualify for the benefits listed on the festival sponsorship web page: for example, a Friend ($50) gets one festival wristband ($40 value), and a Patron ($100) gets two wristbands. Benefits at other levels include hanging your company/organization banner at a venue, announcements from the stage during the festival, and so on. See this link for more details.  http://folkandroots.org/support-2/support/

The C-U Folk and Roots Festival is a cherished community event, and we greatly appreciate the help of our supporters in Champaign-Urbana, East Central Illinois, and all over the country!

The Folk & Roots Festival opening gig is about 3 weeks away, so there is plenty of time to make a donation and help support our homegrown, hands-on festival. We are getting ready to present about 30 family-friendly events over three days, and your donation will help cover the cost of these free performances, storytelling, workshops, demonstrations and more. Please help support these programs if you can.
