Hello! As you may know, donations provide the majority of the University of Chicago Folk Festival's operating budget to produce this world-class, historic event each year.

Although the event is virtual for 2022, we still have many of the same expenses — primarily to compensate our lineup of musicians.

We would be grateful for any donation you are able to provide!
