WHAT

What started as a small gathering on a wet patio in Springfield, VA has grown into an annual "fest" spanning multiple days with multiple social gatherings of Littles. Due to popular demand, we're going to host this event for an unbelievable fifth time. The main event will still be the live show on Saturday night but there will also be opportunities to meet up for food, sight-seeing, podcasting, and sport throughout the weekend.

WHERE

That depends on the success of this campaign and is one of the reasons we're starting earlier than ever before! Jammin Java was the best facility we've used to date and we may go there again, pending availability. If not, I would prefer to move from Virginia to Maryland for 2019 so that out-of-town Littles can be closer to "the sights" like Calvert Woodley & Chatter (and also to make it easier for folks like Gary Braun to attend). If we meet our target funding level, we will have enough for the initial deposit at a place like Jammin Java. If we exceed our target, other options open up!

WHY

If you've followed Jinglefest for the past four years you know that venue fees & food/drink minimums in the DC/MD/VA area are our biggest obstacle. We have enough people attending that a low cost option like a restaurant or bar doesn't have enough space for us while a professional venue is often far too expensive ($15K-$30K just to hold the room!).

For 2019, I'm looking at small concert & event venues that range from $4K - $8K for a booking fee. If someone identifies a cheaper alternative, please let me know!!!

MORE INFO

We don't have a JINGLESIDE logo yet. That design process will occur in parallel with this fundraiser and an update will be posted to this Kickstarter once it's available!

The support of this community has been epic and is what makes all of this stuff possible. If you have any questions about the event, please leave a comment or e-mail mailbag@littlesongs.net

Risks and challenges

This is the fifth Jinglefest & there are no unknowns at this point.
