Create Connections

Help us create the 2019 Festival!

$1,750 raised

$2,000 goal

We are no longer accepting donations on this campaign, but there are other ways for you to support us today!

Help us create a memorable and engaging Festival!

UPDATE: Oh WOW! We've already reached our #GivingTuesday goal, and it's not even 9:30 am! THANK YOU to everyone who donated so far! Since we hit this goal, let's push it and go for $2,000!

Your contributions now mean that we can spend more time creating the Festival you love instead of fundraising. Every bit helps!

For 70 years the Virginia Highlands Festival has connected us. Families plan their summer vacations to come back home for the Festival. Schools plan reunions to take advantage of the artistic and intellectual activities of the Festival. The Abingdon community of small business owners create new connections with visitors who make their trip to the Festival an annual event.

Help us create more connections in 2019 by donating to our #GivingTuesday and Year-End Fundraising campaign today.

Did you know that 65% of all Festival programs are FREE for everyone? 100% of our programs are free for children under the age of 12.

Your donation today helps us keep those programs free, and will help us create the most engaging, exciting, and curious Festival in recent memory. 2019 could be a Festival you won't want to forget, but we can't do it without your financial support.
