Unique Donation Opportunities Provide Enhanced Festival Experience

Did you know it takes more than $850,000 to pull of three days of music, food, crafts, performances, demonstrations, and more that makes up the American Folk Festival each year? The American Folk Festival is grateful for all the supporters that make the event a success each year. However, in order to keep bringing this three-day festival to the Bangor Waterfront and to keep it free, we need continued support.

Of course, all individual and corporate sponsorships are appreciated, but you may not be aware of two other support opportunities available that provide added benefits for festival goers: Family Circle and Producer’s Circle.

Family Circle
if you are a festival goer with children or grandchildren, you may already be aware of the many unique, fun activities the festival has to offer for families, such as The Children’s Village. Consider the Family Circle donation opportunity. For only $250 (or $20.83 per month), you can help your children or grandchildren be a part of the festival in an unparalled way! With this donation you receive:

  • Access to an exclusive Saturday Children’s Village Grand opening
  • Two  American Folk Festival Family Circle t-shirts
  • One-of-a-kind Family Circle identification lanyards

If this level of access interests you, register for the Family Circle here.

Producer’s Circle
Are you interested in getting VIP access to the festival? The Producer’s Circle may be for you! As a member of the producer’s Circle, you receive:

  • Producer’s Circle Member Festival Pass
  • VIP AFF Hospitality Tent Access
  • Tickets to AFF’s exclusive Kickoff Party
  • Sponsor listing on all appropriate AFF Marketing Materials

You can be a part of the Producer’s Circle with your gift of $1,000 (or just $83.33 per month). As a part of this elite giving team, your support is making the festival possible for thousands of our neighbors.
