We’d Love Your Help
At this time, the festival steering committee is already hard at work planning for our 2023 Tulip Festival scheduled for May 18-20, 2023. We kindly ask for your continued support of the Friends of the Festival Foundation to help us take care of some exciting and much-needed updates for this coming year and future festivals. The focus of our fundraising efforts for this year include:
- A new structure to serve as the Information Booth at Town Hall to best serve growing crowds. The Town Hall Information Booth sold tickets this year, and it is great to have this secondary location, especially for those who visit the festival with mobility concerns. The current structure, however, does not offer protection for technology and requires many updates. We look forward to having a new Dutch-front structure that is both welcoming for guests and offers protection from the elements for equipment and volunteers.
- Making some necessary improvements to the announcer stands on the parade route to offer safety and better function for our volunteer announcers. The Volksparade is a premier event of the festival and our announcers create an entertaining and informative experience. The stands currently used are in need of repair, and in some cases, need to be replaced completely.
Please consider making a tax-deductible, year-end gift to the Friends of the Festival Foundation in support of these projects. With a minimum contribution of $100, you will receive “early access” to be able to purchase and reserve seating for the 2023 Night Show production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, starting December 1, 2022. Public ticket sales begin on January 16, 2023.
Thank you for considering a gift and for your continued support of the Orange City Tulip Festival!
