The C-U Folk & Roots Festival is honored by the continuing support of the Urbana Arts and Culture Program. We’re honored to be a part of its mission to foster a city where all residents may engage with the arts and where artists thrive and are valued. Art Thrives in Urbana!
Many, many thanks to the City of Urbana for signing on as primary sponsor of the 2014 CU Folk and Roots Festival! We are tremendously excited about this new partnership and very grateful to the City for investing in the future of the festival.
Looking forward to celebrating our community throughout downtown Urbana in November!
This month’s featured sponsor is the Pawn Shop in Rantoul, a business that’s been a staunch supporter of the festival since its inception. The Pawn Shop is not your typical pawn shop. For starters, they sell the practical, the new, the used, the fun, and the unusual. In their music room they carry a full range of guitars, drums, PA equipment, and lighting, and they stand behind what they sell. As John says, “…tons of new and used music gear at great prices, many forms of payment (trades welcome), and no salesman hassles from the overly attractive employees. What more can you ask for?” We love the Pawn Shop and you should too!
