What does it cost and where does the money go?  Our budget for bringing hundreds of concerts to venues across Cincinnati in one day is less, we like to say, than the cost of installing a traffic light. Far less.

The work of small army of volunteers makes it possible to pull this off on such a limited budget, but unavoidable costs remain, including: publicity and advertising that are critical to the success of the event, software development for the matchmaking system, a part-time managing director to coordinate the many volunteers and handle the administrative aspects of the event, and many smaller items such as insurance and event permitting.

Help cover these costs, and be part of bringing the musical merriment to the summer solstice!

Currently all donations up to $5000 are being matched by a grant funded by ArtsWave!


Our partners benefit from co-marketing with an event that has become a summer highlight, and receive extensive exposure through print and radio advertising, prominent placement on a highly trafficked website and mobile app, and on posters and banners at more than 100 venues. When the Solstice rolls around, we are everywhere.
