First, a huge thank you to all of our supporters, without whom our festival could not happen!
Community, culture, connection – the Peterborough Folk Festival creates a safe space in the heart of the City where the concerns of everyday life fade. In their place, families and community members young and old find joy in spending time together, discovering new music, food, and friends on the banks of the Otonabee River. Below, you’ll find the funders, partners, and businesses that help to make it happen.
The Peterborough Folk Festival is an incorporated non-profit, primarily volunteer-run organization, and we rely entirely on donations and funding from a number of sources.
Interested in becoming a PFF sponsor? Please feel free to contact Candace at firstname.lastname@example.org or (705) 874-6796 to discuss how you can get involved. Your participation is essential in continuing a twenty-year tradition of high-quality arts, music, food and community together in one festival.
Superhero funders contribute cash amounts of greater than $10,000 to the Peterborough Folk Festival.
The City of Peterborough have long been committed to supporting arts, culture, and heritage in this community, and to that end have been strong supporters of the Peterborough Folk Festival for many years. In addition, many City departments – from Parks and Recreation to Waste Disposal – give great assistance to the festival throughout the year.
The Department of Canadian Heritage’s Arts Presentation Canada program promotes multicultural and inter-provincial cultural exchange. Allowing smaller towns and venues to bring acts from out-of-province that otherwise would be out of reach, the DCH-APC program has been a PFF supporter for almost a decade.
The Lloyd Carr-Harris Foundation is a private Canadian foundation established in 1993. It was the late Lloyd Carr-Harris’ wish that his assets be used to fund areas of education, music and medical research. To that end, the Foundation has supported the Peterborough Folk Festival since 2006, ensuring that the festival’s vision is able to flourish and support young, emerging artists from across the country.
Great Heart sponsors contribute goods and services or cash amounts of $500 – $999 to the festival.
Generation Solar – Long-time supporters, helping to make the PFF one of the lowest-impact festivals in the country. Generation Solar designs, supplies, installs, and services a broad range of renewable energy systems for residential and commercial applications, including solar electric and solar water heating technologies.
The Publican House Brewery – Joining the PFF for the first time in 2009, the Publican House is a local micro-brewery crafting some of the finest and most interesting brews in Ontario. We can’t think of anything finer than a great Canadian band and a great Canadian beer at the PFF!
