Sponsored Families

Who Qualifies?

The Sponsored Families Program seeks to increase diversity and inclusiveness at the Festival by providing outreach and assistance for first-time Festival attendees from underrepresented and/or socially or economically excluded communities whose household incomes fall below 50% of the median for their county of residence.

Craft Lake City works closely with nonprofit partner organizations to help identify families who may benefit from this program. These organizations play a crucial role as liaisons between Craft Lake City and the families, helping facilitate logistics and communication.

For the purposes of the program, a “family” represents a household, and may include a single individual or multiple people sharing one roof and one household budget.

In order to make the best use of program resources, Craft Lake City seeks to includes families who are committed to attending the Festival and fully participating in the activities offered.

What Benefits do Sponsored Families Receive?

Each individual from a Sponsored Family receive the following:

• One DIY Festival general admission ticket (to be used on the Festival day of their choice)
• Meal voucher
• Kids craft voucher
• STEM craft voucher
• Craft Lake City merchandise

How do Sponsored Families Participate?

Craft Lake City works with community nonprofit partners to identify families who may be interested in and benefit from the Sponsored Families program. Once families are identified:

  • Craft Lake City, with the partner organization, invites the families to attend the Festival and provides them with logistics regarding check in at the Festival.
  • The Craft Lake City will provide entry tickets and vouchers to the family.
  • The Craft Lake City will also provide a mini tour of the Festival to help orient the family.
  • Families are then free to enjoy the Festival at their own pace for the day.
