Willimantic Street Fests


Be a "Friend of the Fest"


Each Fest costs about $20,000 to produce. Fortunately, almost $10,000 is covered through in-kind services and volunteer labor, so our ‘cash’ cost is only about $10,000. With that, we pay performers and sound, and for advertising, insurance, port-a-potties, postage and other fest expenses. About 1/3rd of our revenue comes from vendor fees (support our vendors!), another 1/3rd comes from beer and wine and button sales.  The final 1/3rd comes from fundraising: from folks like you.   We make a little some months, we lose a little sometimes.

While it’s exciting to live so close to the edge, we know that many, many festival goers would be happy to make a small contribution to support all of this volunteer work. We know that you’ll be proud to see your name listed as a "Friend of the Fest" in the monthly program.  And, we'll send you a Fest Button, which gives you a 20% discount in the Beer and Wine Garden.
It's easy - all you have to do is drop us a note and enclose a check for $30 make out to WRI (Willimantic Renaissance Inc.)
