The Future of Funk and Giving

This year was a turning point for the festival.  You all showed us that even in the rain and cold the community is going to come out for the Funk!  That means planning for 2018 starts now!  Making sure we can raise enough funds to keep Funk Parade Free and oOpen to everyone also starts now.  There is no better time.  

If you helped out and donated during the year and at the festival, thank you!  If you have not had a chance to give a small donation, you are in luck.  We have decided to keep our Community Giving Campaign open for the next couple of months!  If you can make a contribution please do.

If you still want to GIVE -  https://www.generosity.com/community-fundraising/funk-parade
