It is with heavy hearts that we have had to cancel the 41st Calgary Folk Music Festival. Read our official statement.
This reality, understandably, has serious implications for us at our fest and the live music industry at large. There is no precedent or standard “best fundraising tips” for how to ask for your help right now. There is no roadmap for navigating the devastation that COVID19 has unleashed onto the arts community. We don’t like to ask, but we have to.
What would a folk singer do? They’d pass the hat. Our audience has always been relentlessly supportive of live music. It’s our turn to pass the hat to you for a donation. In order to weather the next 12 months, our organization would benefit strongly from your financial support.
The hat is in your hands. Please donate today.
