Welcome to our new sponsors!
The Champaign-Urbana Folk and Roots Festival is thrilled to have the Illinois Marathon and the Sousa Archives and Center for American Music join Busey Bank as Benefactor-level sponsors of the 2013 festival. Check out our growing list of business and organization sponsors!
Last year’s Champaign-Urbana Folk and Roots Festival hosted over 80 performers, artists, and storytellers celebrating American roots music, dance, and stories. The activities included huge range of jam sessions, dances, workshops, sing-a-longs, storytelling, and family activities. Want to help out with the festival? Please consider volunteering your time! We need year round friendly faces to pitch in and help on our various working committees.
