Brandon Folk, Music and Art Festival organizers have run into a number of challenges preparing for this year’s event.
Organizers are still working to scrape together funds for a key piece for the upcoming festival, which is set to kick off July 27 at Princess Park.
"Port-o-potties require cash upfront, and there’s very little of that this year," organizer Shandra MacNeill shared in a Facebook post Monday afternoon in the Brandon Folk, Music and Art Festival group. "We need to raise $1,600 for our port-o-potties, so while we scurry around trying to make this happen, we’re asking you to sponsor personally one of our lovely five port-o-potties that enable the whole thing to happen!"
They’re looking for any contributions, she said.
Calls the Sun made to the organizer Monday and Tuesday for comment were not returned.
Organizers also dealt with a funding issue earlier this month that delayed securing the performing lineup at the festival.
Provincial funding wasn’t confirmed until two weeks ago, and they were unable to move forward with a lineup until they heard back, an earlier post from MacNeill said.
