Can You Help Keep the Old Settler's Vibe Alive?

Old Settler’s Music Festival is reaching out and asking for your support.

Financial challenges, due to unexpected expenses, have put our beloved 31-year-old Americana music festival in jeopardy. While planning is underway for the 2019 festival, the situation is serious, and we need your help.

While being frugal with the festival’s finances enabled us to buy a beautiful permanent home of 145 acres, there were many challenges this year.  We had planned to move the festival in 2019.  But because of the abrupt termination of our 2018 location agreement, a lawsuit to defend OSMF from a would-be festival trying to take our brand, accelerated land preparation costs, and county-mandated infrastructure changes, we find ourselves in our first deficit situation in over a decade.  Now we need your financial support.

Giving comes with benefits – become a “Champion” at the $1,000 level and we’ll give you a four day ticket with camping to our 2019 festival.  Join us at the “Pioneer” level for $2,500 and we’ll provide you with a “Platinum” ticket.  In addition, we’ll recognize your contribution on both the website and in our 2019 festival program.  We’ll also give both groups free “early entry” to the festival before the general public!

As you know, we work hard and cherish the opportunity to provide you with an incredible environment to enjoy music, friends and community. We hope you, too, have felt the love. We trust that you will give back to Old Settler’s by sending a generous gift today.

Many Thanks to Our Donors!
