Hello festival friends! The Music Festival is only a few days away, and as we are busy getting the weekend organized, we are hoping that our wonderful attendees begin to plan ahead as well.
We've opened up a community account and set up our Paypal so we are able to accept donations ahead of time! Please keep in mind that this year we will have a maximum capacity for safety reasons. You will be able to donate at the gate if we are still under capacity, but we are expecting this to be the busiest year to date and the only way to secure your spot on the beautiful grass is to donate ahead of time.
We are asking for a minimum donation of $40. As we are a community run, not-for-profit festival this is also how we cover our costs up front. Thus far it has all been out of pocket, if you know for sure that you're coming, then please donate right now! http://www.cortesislandmusicfestival.com/#
Once you donate, you will have a wrist band waiting for you at the gate. People who donate ahead of time will also receive a $5 discount entry to the Friday and Saturday night dance parties at the Gorge Hall. Both nights are $20 at the door.
If you can't donate online, you will be able to leave cash donations at a few local businesses on the island. We will let you know where you can do this asap.
We are also in need of volunteers for the weekend. If you are unable to donate, this is a great way to get to enjoy the weekend. We just ask that volunteers give a 4 hour commitment over the two days. If you would like to volunteer you can email us at: cortesmusicfestgmail.com or sign up at the pre-donation locations.
To raise funds for next year, we will be holding a silent auction. We are looking for items that we can value at approximately $40 or higher. This can be anything from a gift basket, baked goods, gift certificates, a few hours of gardening, craft items, goods, etc.
This is also a great way to gain entry for the weekend if you are unable to donate $
Please get in touch with us through email, if you have an idea for a contribution to the silent auction.
We still have a lot of space for vendors. You can contact us through the festival email to sign up or talk to Lilith.
Any questions or inquiries please don't hesitate to email us! We would love to answer any questions you may have.
We are super excited for the weekend and we hope you are too!
