It's do or die for the future of vEGGfest
The countdown is on to sell 500 vEGGfest weekend passes by the end of the month, all without any indication as to what the musical lineup for the festival would be.
That's the decision made by the Vegreville and District Chamber of Commerce Executive Council, who say attendance numbers have steadily declined each year.
vEGGfest Committee Member from the Vegreville and District Chamber of Commerce, Scott Dixon, says it's now up to the community to save vEGGfest.
vEGGfest Committee Member from the Vegreville and District Chamber of Commerce, Kyle Bodnarchuk, says that they need to guarantee enough financial support before even looking at a musical lineup.
Organizers note that the campaign is much like a Kickstarter campaign, where there are rewards for the number of weekend passes bought. from "I SAVED vEGGfest" buttons, a chance to vote on the headlining talent, and the opportunity to introduce the headliners on stage as a "Special Guest Emcee". Weekend passes are $100 plus G.S.T.
