The Busker Festival was trying to raise additional money since its state funding was cut. Did it raise enough money?
The funding campaign has not reached its goal of $3,500, and there is just one week left in the campaign — until Aug. 2. Pledges can be made at the Kickstarter website for the Busker Festival, at kck.st/mHwom4. Prizes are offered for various pledge levels. The money would pay for things like artist’s fees, shade tents for spectators and production fees. This year’s Busker Festival will be Aug. 19-21 at various locations in downtown Lawrence.
