Sponsors and Grantors

“Love the venue. Love the community feel of the festival. It had the same warm and enthusiastic spirit as the old Kent fest. Thank you!”

Sponsorships Available for 2020 Folk Festival

The Lake Erie Folk Fest embraces our differences and celebrates what we have in common, with programming for all ages that reflects the cultural diversity of our region. 

Each year, an estimated 900 people enjoy a free afternoon of inspirational music performances, hands-on workshops, community jams and dances in the spacious facilities of Shore Cultural Centre in Euclid, Ohio.  The day concludes with an exciting evening concert enjoyed by 650 music lovers.

We also present a Friday Morning School Show where students come to Shore and learn about musical styles, cultures, and communities. And new in 2020, we’ve added Bluegrass Band Lab, a Friday evening workshop for experienced musicians led by Carolina Blue, Saturday’s headliners. 

Please support the festival

The Lake Erie Folk Fest is generously supported by sponsors and grantors in order to make these two days of music programming free or affordable for the public. Please consider becoming one of our sponsors.   Sponsor form here. Following are the sponsor levels:

– Pinnacle Partner:  $5000 investment (only one available).

– Sponsor a Music Series: $1500 investment (six available). Choose a music series (Friday Morning School Show, Mini Concerts, Community Jams, Community Dances, Music Workshops or Kid Workshops) to sponsor, and have the entire block of events named after you or your organization.

– Sponsor School Buses for the School Show: $1000 investment (five available). We have a number of schools that would like to participate in the Friday Morning School Show, but transportation is expensive! $1000 provides school buses for about 80 students to attend the show and discover the joy, inspiration and education that music can bring.
