This project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of New York State Council of the Arts, with the support of Governor Andrew M Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and administered by the St. Lawrence County Arts Council.

With the COVID-19 restrictions, we sadly have cancelled our 2020 Summer Schedule of Concerts.  We also have cancelled the July 4th Craft Fair and Artisan Fair on July 16, 2020.   The Boat Parade is currently being held.
We are hoping as summer progresses that we may be able to hold our Labor Day weekend 5k Walk/Run and possibly a concert.

These events are offered to the public at no charge. Your financial support is needed to defray costs.   We are seeking to raise $10,000.00 to pay for bands, advertising, location site fees, and various operating expenses.   At each event, refreshments and Brantingham advertising items will be sold. To kick off the sponsorship campaign, we have received a donation of $1,000.00.

We are reaching out to you; community family members and local businesses, either as a single sponsor of any one of these scheduled events, or by donating any amount you are able to give.  The members of our committee welcome your support and are confident the program has something to offer to all.  Our goal is to bring more activity and family fun for ages 5 or 95.  However, we cannot do it alone.  Please complete the form below and send your generous contribution.  Help build new sources for fun and activity in the Brantingham Community.  You too can make a difference.

For business owners, place an ad in the event programs. It’s good exposure and offers thanks to all the Brantingham Community who have used your services, products, or establishment.  It’s a way to reach out to potential new customers.  Contact John or Roger.

Send us your ideas for future events.  In the works are a tour of historic and special homes in the community, and a concert on water-with music played onshore.

In addition to financial support, volunteers are needed the day of an event to help with parking, working food venues, welcoming guests, or helping with promotional item sales.

Feel free to contact any of us if you have questions or comments.
