We’re grateful to have received support from the Town of Guilford and a large number of Shoreline businesses, charitable organizations, community groups and arts organizations. The town, the school system and churches have graciously allowed us to use their facilities. Businesses have welcomed music, theater and dance into their spaces, contributed money, made in-kind donations and donated items for a fundraising auction. Foundations and individual donors have contributed funds without which we couldn’t operate and put on the festival.

We got our start with seed money from the Guilford Foundation based on their faith in the festival and their belief in its value to the town. Click here to see what other businesses, foundations and individuals made the 2017 festival possible.
