Spread Laughter: Fund The Black Girl Giggles Fest

Welcome to the Black Girl Giggles Fest GoFundMe campaign!

We are on a mission to celebrate and empower black women in comedy, amplifying joy and laughter like never before. Join us in supporting this remarkable festival, taking place from June 29th to July 2nd in the vibrant city of New Orleans, Louisiana.

The Black Girl Giggles Fest is a groundbreaking event that serves as a platform for talented black women to showcase their brilliance and advance their careers. However, we recognize that systemic barriers have made it difficult for these talented artists to access traditional festival models. That's where we need your help!

Your generous contributions will directly benefit the black women comedians participating in the festival. Funds raised will go towards crucial expenses such as venue cost, career advancement workshops, assistance with lodging & transportation, meals, cultural enrichment activities and performance grants. By easing the financial burdens associated with participating in comedy festivals, we enable these exceptional artists to focus on what they do best—amplifying joy and laughter for all to enjoy!

We are proud to share that our festival is executed with the support and volunteer efforts of the entire New Orleans comedy community. As a token of our gratitude, we aim to also provide fair compensation to these dedicated individuals who work tirelessly to make this event a success.

Our festival is set to showcase over 50 incredible black women comedians hailing from New Orleans and around the country. These talented performers represent diverse backgrounds and lifestyles, offering unique comedy perspectives that will have you laughing out loud. From sharp observational humor to thought-provoking social commentary, their performances promise to entertain, enlighten, challenge the norm and perhaps change the world. By supporting our festival, you uplift these remarkable comedians and help us create a platform where their voices can shine. Together, let's celebrate the vibrant diversity of black women in comedy.

In addition to donations, you can also show your support by purchasing tickets or merchandise via our website. By doing so, you not only contribute to the festival's success but also gain access to unforgettable comedy performances that will leave you in stitches!

For businesses seeking sponsorship opportunities, the Black Girl Giggles Fest presents a wonderful option. The festival coincides with the Essence Festival, attracting over 300,000 additional visitors to the city. This provides a unique platform for businesses to showcase their brands to a diverse and engaged audience.

Together, let's celebrate the power of comedy to inspire, uplift, and unite. Your contribution, no matter the size, will make a significant impact on the lives and careers of these exceptional black women in comedy. By supporting the Black Girl Giggles Fest, you contribute to creating a more inclusive and vibrant comedy landscape.

Join us in New Orleans from June 29th to July 2nd for an unforgettable experience filled with laughter, empowerment, and community. Let's make the Black Girl Giggles Fest a resounding success, showcasing the immense talent of black women in comedy.
