Funds raised through this GoFundMe campaign will go directly to costs associated with putting on the Artburg's Children’s Festival 2019.  

Your support will help cover some of these costs: live music, bouncy castles, local balloon artist, insurance, portable washrooms, horse and carriage ride, art supplies, local performers, rental of supplies and services, and all those other things that we are not thinking of right now! (Haha)
