For the past 30 years the GrassRoots Festivals have been a part of your family and you have been a part of ours. We have come together several times a year in the spirit of music, art and community, and what started as a benefit to support AIDS related causes has transformed into an engine for expression, creativity, education and critically weighing the issues of our time in order to create positive change in the community. This feels like one of these times where all of this matters the most.
As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization we have worked very hard to keep this festival belonging to you, our fans, and each ticket purchased or volunteer hour performed has been instrumental to this mission. We don’t have large pools of corporate sponsors as we have kept our festival an authentic experience, free from the boundaries of corporate influence. Each donation or ticket has ensured that this remains your festival, and for that the GrassRoots Festival Organization is very grateful for the generations of fans that have come together in this spirit.
Now for the first time since the festival began 30 years ago, with an entire year of GrassRoots Festivals postponed, we need your support more than ever. In order to raise the $100,000 needed to prepare for the 2021 season, the GrassRoots Festivals are bringing the spirit and essence of GrassRoots to your living room with Save Your Roots, a live stream event from the State Theatre in Ithaca, NY on Saturday, December 19, 2020. So please save the date and help us launch the GrassRoots Festivals into the next 30 years by joining your GrassRoots Family to Save Your Roots.
