LETTER: Starbelly will be back

On behalf of the Starbelly Jam Society, the board would like to keep you up to date with the current state of the festival.

While Starbelly Jam will take this year off

On behalf of the Starbelly Jam Society, the board would like to keep you up to date with the current state of the festival. As many may have heard already, Starbelly will not be organizing the festival for 2016, but we have every intention of getting things rolling again for 2017. The Starbelly board and central organizers are looking at 2016 as a regenerative year, talking some time to focus on the internal structure, so that we can make 2017 and the coming years even better than ever!

The Starbelly board would like to assure you that the festival is alive and financially sound. But as the dynamics have shifted, and population has dwindled on the East Shore over the years, Starbelly’s biggest obstacle has been finding new volunteers to take on some of our central management positions.

You could say we’ve grown too big for our britches in a way. If you love music, sunshine, and children’s laughter, we encourage you to step forward. If you have any question regarding volunteering or about the state of the festival please contact us at info@starbellyjam.org.

Starbelly Jam Society, Crawford Bay
