Spring has arrived!

The Shakori Hills Community Arts Center is doing a fundraiser this April at the GrassRoots Festival, we’re celebrating Spring after a long winter and we thought it’d be fun to sell some “Celebrate Spring bags!” We’re putting together small bags ($5 each) that will be decorated and filled with goodies such as sweet treats, seed packets and each of them will have an egg in it, some will have candies in the egg and some eggs will have more of a prize such as:

A pair of tickets to the next festival at Shakori Hills

A free ice cream cone

Discounts at some of the craft & food vendors

Discounts at the Coffee Barn

or one of the many other awesome donations from some of our favorite businesses!

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.
