We made it! Reaching our $6,000 goal on Kickstarter means the Westsylvania Jazz & Blues Festival is a go.
So mark your calendars: live jazz and blues will be heard in the streets of Indiana, Pennsylvania on May 24, 2014.
Huge, huge, HUGE thanks to our backers and supporters. The steering committee is humbled by the outpouring of support we’ve seen, and we’re excited to able to bring this festival from dream to reality.
This Isn’t the End
Reaching $6,000, plus the generous funding we’ve had from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, the Pennsylvania Rural Arts Alliance, and The Lively Arts at IUP, puts us at the minimum we need to put on a festival.
But we’re going to be continuing our fundraising efforts to put on the best festival we can, with the best headliners we can afford. So fundraising continues. In fact, the Kickstarter campaign in still on until Wednesday Jan 15 at 7:24pm. Any additional funds we collect will go toward making a better festival.
(And it gives you a little more time to snag our limited edition t-shirt!)
We are also still looking to partner with local businesses and organizations who’d like to become festival sponsors. If you or your business or organization is interested in becoming a sponsor, please contact the steering committee.
