We’re sorry to say the Volunteer Appreciation event we had scheduled for March 23 is being canceled. Folk and Roots is doing our bit to halt community spread of the virus that causes COVID-19. We love our volunteers and want everyone to stay well!
If you have the means, think about how you can support our local music and culture scene. Buy local bands’ music online. Any other merchandise you’ve had your eye on, buy it now. Tickets for events next fall? Go ahead and spring for them now.
Musicians and other artists don’t always have much of a safety net. If you value art in your community, invest in art in your community!
Did you volunteer for the 2017 festival or support the festival with your contributions? Please join us for an appreciation party to celebrate everyone’s collective efforts in making the festival a great event.
In appreciation of your efforts to support the Festival, we invite you to join us for free pizza, salad, and a drink. As with last year’s event, we want to thank you for your ongoing support of the C-U Folk and Roots Festival. We’ll also use the opportunity to honor selected Gold Star Sponsors and Volunteers.
Thursday, March 1 at 6 PM – 8 PM
@Pizza-M, 208 W Main St, Urbana.
At this year’s event we want to focus solely on celebration and community. No sign up sheets or “Asks” involved–seriously. Come join us, let us thank you for your help with last year’s festival, and have a good time.
The 2018 Festival– number 10!–is already off to a good start with many new folks joining our effort and settling into productive, important roles.
Wanna hang with a bunch of fun people, listen to some great music, and tell newcomers about the C-U Folk and Roots Festival? Sign up to help at our booth at the Urbana Farmer’s Market! We’ll be there four times: September 3rd, September 17th, October 1st, and October 15th. Click on this link to select your shift.
