Thanks you for interest in helping support this amazing festival! We have many different ways for you to be involved, either as a volunteer or a sponsor on the individual or business level!
Why Sponsor Midwest Gypsy Swing Fest?
Midwest Gypsy Swing Festival is the brainchild of Sims and Maggie Delaney-Potthoff, the founders of Harmonious Wail- Madison, Wisconsin’s award winning acoustic Americana- avored Gypsy Jazz trio. For 31 years The Wail was has performed at festivals worldwide. As a result Harmonious Wail has created a unique Euro-style festival of it’s own right here in the Midwest, bringing world class virtuosos to the Midwest Gypsy Swing Festival’s twice yearly performances.
Your support not only gets you front row seats at the shows, but you become a strategic partner in our growing festival, as well as our non-profit the Henry Mac Fund, and you give life to true, heartfelt, high-integrity music. Your support and sponsorship of the Midwest Gypsy Swing Fest will directly benefit the Henry Mac Fund’s ability to keep paying it forward by supporting the arts and education.
Sponsor recognition creates an intimate association with the festival’s year-round promotional efforts, each of which has more than doubled in dedicated followers over the past year. You, your business and/or your cause will be promoted via professional graphic and electronic imagery in the following recognition elements:
