Good morning, Sisters!
I have had many requests for work exchanges or discounted tickets for volunteering.
Most of the responses are prefaced with the many years that they received work exchanges or discounted tickets for MWMF.
Thank you so very much for your service to MWMF for so many years. It was wonderful to have such support for the 40 year festival. It was very sad that it ended and I am so regretful that I was only able to attend the final year in 2015.
This is our 2nd year doing Michigan Framily Reunion. While last year was a wonderful success for our first year, it is still only our 2nd year and we don't have 40 years of support and infrastructure.
That being said, we are not able to offer work exchanges or discounted tickets. We are heavily reliant on volunteers.
My partner and I are completely covering expenses and labor for this festival. There have been many fundraisers that are centered around purchasing the land of MWMF. We understand and support that but sisters have limited pockets and can not donate to every festival that springs up. We understand that. But it makes it very challenging to create a festival with all of the expenses that add up and offer discounts or work exchanges or scholarships when we are already funding the event.
At some point, if we continue (we hope to continue!) we might be able to offer work exchanges, etc. Unfortunately, our budget does not support that at this time.
I hope you will be able to attend. There will be 15 acts over the weekend and the discounted price of $150 (prior to 6/10) for the whole weekend is much less than just a weekend pass at MWMF. I hope you understand.
I hope you will be able to come and help during an Amazon Work Weekend as we create the space from the ground up. I also hope you will be able to attend our festival and maybe come early for Eager Beavers.
Thanks so much for asking!
