We love our friends

So much, in fact, that our supporters who join as official "Friends with Benefits" receive access to our most popular events and other perks, like freebies and special offers from our partners, all year long.

With your $250 contribution you'll receive access to the events listed below as well as other exclusive perks.  These funds enable us to jump-start early planning for next year's festival without losing any momentum from the excitement drummed up this year.

Want to join as a couple? No problem

Our friends who really aim to please can get access for up to four to each event with a $800 donation with our "Benefactor" membership.

Friends with Benefits membership ends after the festival in June each year no matter when you joined.
