Sponsor Volunteering Donate
The Black Swamp Arts Festival is 100% community supported and volunteer-run. Your tax-deductible donation to this 501(c)(3) non-profit helps create this free, 3-day, community festival of fine art, live music, and hands-on children's art. Together, we are celebrating, enjoying, and encouraging visual and performing arts. When you are a part creating this amazing arts festival, you are recognized for your support. We appreciate you, thank you!
A community festival is surprisingly expensive to conduct. From licenses, permits, tents, chairs, performing arts, youth arts materials, artists' demonstrations, art awards and scholarships, refuse, and more of the behind-the-scenes costs, there is a reason this is a volunteer-led, non-profit organization. It's for the love of the arts.
Support the Arts with a donation today. Every dollar counts.
Make a lasting contribution of support to the future of the Festival by donating to the Black Swamp Arts Festival endowment held by the Toledo Community Foundation.
