Community involvement is a large part of what motivates the Utica Music and Arts Festival. Without interest and support from their communities, musicians and artists cannot thrive. In turn, without music and art, communities lack a vital aspect of what makes up culture. Beyond just that basic foundation, festival organizers have always endeavored to give something back to Central New York through various relationships with local charities and social groups. At this time, the UMAF is honored and proud to announce that the festival will be working with the National Brain Injury Foundation.
The UMAF hopes to help more community members become aware of the great work of the NBIF though the connection between the two groups, and the festival team is also genuinely grateful for the assistance of the Foundation in our fundraising efforts, The Greens Festival, and all other facets of the UMAF. Each organization will share portions of the contributions from future joint fundraising events and look forward to cooperating to that end.
I trust your calendars are marked for this year’s UMAF, September 13, 14 & 15. Please stay tuned for more announcements to come and thank you as always for your beautiful support. We love U!
