Welcome to the Tucson Folk Festival – May 5-6, 2018!
Each year, we seek to enhance the community’s Festival experience in an unexpected, yet meaningful way. This year, we are especially focusing on engaging more folks to support and sustain the Tucson Folk Festival for years to come. I am meeting with various community leaders throughout the city to share these opportunities and create new partnerships.
This festival season, we have planned some fun new activities throughout the year to acquaint the public with our Festival. The FEST on FOURTH on April 14th is a pre-Festival peek of performers at venues along 4th Avenue culminating in an Acoustic Lottery Fundraiser at the Flycatcher. A TKMA-Barrio Bread Overnight Campout& Song Circle at Catalina State Park is the week before on April 6-7th! Upcoming Activities Here. New festival highlights include relocating the Beer Garden to El Presidio Park, a new stage at Telles & Meyer with street closures, along with creating a Kid’s Zone within El Presidio Park to house the Children’s Show, the Roger Mikulas Young Artist Showcase on the Wildflower Stage and youth-centered vendors!
A new opportunity we implemented at last year’s festival was a Wi-Fi POD advertising opportunity to our top community partners/sponsors! This opportunity enables sponsors to:
- Display logo on the Wi-Fi POD Unit;
- Display logo on Wi-Fi portal and front pages every time festival attendees access Wi-Fi
- Sponsors may also post promotions during the festival and/or links to their website
Keeping the Tucson Folk Festival “one of the oldest FREE folk music festivals in the country” is a fact we’re quite proud of! I encourage you to visit our website to acquaint yourself with TKMA activities and information available! Visit us at: www.tucsonfolkfest.org
We are especially excited this year to be embracing change, which we feel, will enhance this year’s festival experience! Please feel free to contact me with any question you may have and/or to set up a meeting to explore custom partner/sponsor options!
Thank you for your interest in the 2018 Tucson Folk Festival! We are always seeking community-minded businesses and individuals wishing to support the Tucson Folk Festival! If you are interested in learning more about sponsor/community partnerships, I would be happy to meet with you to explore the right fit for you!
Best wishes in the New Year!
33rd Annual Tucson Folk Festival – May 5-6, 2018!
