Thank you so much to all those who donated to FolkyFishFest last year! We need to raise WAY more money this year to pull it off again!

We broke even last year, our inaugural year, thanks to your support and the generosity of the bands and volunteers! We're hiring bands from all over the US this year and offering even more fishing, hiking, nature, crochet/yarn/spinning, children's, yoga, beermaking and music workshops on top of hiring lifeguards, a sound company, paying for the camp, the big tent, paying the camp for camping, insurance, security... you get the picture. Basically, we need to raise $20,000 or get at least four hundred people to buy $50 weekend passes in order to break even. Your donation, at any level, makes a huge difference! Spread the word! Invite everyone you know! Seriously, this is one of the best family friendly festivals you can attend this summer and by far the best deal! Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your donation, for inviting your friends, and for joining us this August 16th-18th at 5215 N 450 W Angola, IN 46703 for our second annual FolkyFishFest!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Putting on a Festival is no easy undertaking. Angie Swinehart and myself are doing almost everything with the help of a handful of amazing volunteers! We haven't figured out how to become a Not-For-Profit 501C3 without spending lots of money we don't have and hiring a full time year around staff. This means that we can't apply for grants and need to rely solely on attendance and personal donations to pull this off. If a giant storm comes raging through and no one comes to the festival, I still have to pay the $20,000 that this festival costs out of my own pocket. Trust me. I don't have it. Am I crazy? Yes! I'm taking a huge risk (again!) in putting this on but, if you ask anyone who attended last year, they'll tell you how amazing this festival really is and with your support we can make this dream come true!!!
