The Spanish Peaks International Celtic Music Festival (SPICMF) is funded and fueled by donors. Every monetary donation makes a difference to us, but we are currently $10,000 - $15,000 below the level that we realistically need to begin the 2021 season.  

 

Needs we currently have-

· Part-time Administrative Director…………………$8,000

· Musician costs………………………………….......……$38,000

· Publications and publicity……………………..…….$2,000

· Musician food services…………………………….....$4000

 - Insurance.......................................................$6000

· Office and operations……………………………….…$3000

 

To that end we offer the opportunity to sponsor specific musicians, bands, and events.  This includes our school events.  The various sponsorship levels  come with perks that affords the sponsor a participatory experience in the Festival. Sponsorship levels can be found below. 

 

Every monetary donation makes a difference, and all count towards making each year happen.

Volunteers,

Are the life blood of the Festival.  There are opportunities in all facets of the Festival to contribute.  Contact Jonathan James (742-3722) if you are interested.  There are volunteer roles that take place in advance of the Festival, as well as during the Festival.

 

Housing, 

for artists during the festival is also donated by hosts who want to share their home with musicians.  Just as with volunteering, it is a win-win relationship for the hosts and the Festival.  If you would like to consider being a housing host let Jonathan James know.

Spanish Peaks International Celtic Music Festival

  • If you are reading this, it is very likely that you are aware that every September for the past sixteen years, there has been a four-day event featuring amazing Celtic music concerts in all four of Huerfano County’s communities.  You probably also know that there are always more than 25 workshops and classes, 15 “demo-performances,” and 15 free events, all centered around Celtic music and culture.  And you probably also know that the Festival is truly an international draw, featuring internationally known musicians.  What you might not know, however, is that it has been volunteer led and donation driven since its inception, and would not exist without your help.

    As an international destination we make a significant contribution to the local economy, but even more important, our master musicians perform and teach in County schools as an annual gift to local children.  Please help us continue with our mission.
