Purchasing Shakori Hills: We did it!
Thank you Everyone!
As a joint venture Shakori Hills Community Arts Center (local non-profit benefiting NC that hosts the Shakori Hills GrassRoots Festival) and Fingerlakes GrassRoots Festival (Trumansburg, NY based non-profit that produces the four seasons of GrassRoots Festivals series) organizations are excited to announce that the property known as Shakori Hills has been purchased!
Our down payment goal was reached last year (THANK YOU!), and thanks to many wonderful folks like yourself who invested in the community-owned mortgage, the purchase closing happened on December 10th.

A great big shout out of gratitude goes out to Carol Hewitt of Slow Money NC for all the work and help in putting the community mortgage together!
Thank you for all your support! We look forward to seeing you soon!
