Dear GrassRoots Family,
At each one of our events we are reminded of the amazing group effort it takes to present a GrassRoots Festival. Whether it is the Finger Lakes GrassRoots Festival of Music & Dance or the Shakori Hills GrassRoots Festival of Music & Dance, the sense of community involvement and support is overwhelming and inspiring. We can’t help but notice that we are seeing a lot of the same faces at GrassRoots Festivals. Over the years, many of you have become more than just patrons of the festival. Many of you have become die hard annual attendees, volunteers, staff, performers, and members of our extended family.
We are currently working on the Second Annual Virginia Key GrassRoots Festival of Music & Dance in Miami, Florida. The festival will be held February 21st –February 24th. As those of you who attended last year already know, this festival is held at the most amazing venue in the country. The Festival site is Historic Virginia Key Beach Park, where you can literally wake up, walk out of your tent, and go swim in the ocean. We are excited to announce that we have partnered with the Historic Virginia Key Beach Park! Our festival will serve as an annual source of revenue for the Beach Park Trust. In addition, we will be continuously upgrading the infrastructure and hosting building projects to help the development of this magnificent site. Miami is one of the most culturally diverse cities in America. This diversity breeds some of the best fusion and world music in the continental United States. This festival has the potential to be absolutely amazing!
Now we need some support from you, our GrassRoots Family, to ensure the future of the Virginia Key GrassRoots Festival. We are offering a one-time special to those of you who love GrassRoots as much as we do, and want to see the organization continue to grow. We have big dreams and need your help to make them come true!
