Every Little Bit Helps

Your financial support is essential to our festival! Money from sponsorships and grants has made it possible to book some of the finest national and regional performers in the folk arts, such as Hot Club of Cowtown, Irish fiddle champion Liz Carroll, the award-winning Cojunto band Los T-Birds from Austin, Texas and many, many fine local groups and performers. In addition, financial donations allow the festival to emphasize a wide variety of hands-on and participatory workshops and events for children and adults alike. Please consider a monetary donation to the festival and keep folk art traditions and innovations alive!

We offer two ways to contribute – online through the form below or by postal mail to C-U Folk and Roots Festival, PO Box 331, Urbana, IL 61803. Be sure to check our Sponsorship Levels page to find a full listing of the benefits of giving!
