Things are progressing nicely at OMF. We had a public participation session and a lot of great ideas came out. We have our first three performers booked and the fund-raising is in full swing. We have had several folks step up to take on major roles in helping us plan. We welcome your ideas. Contact us and let us know how you would like to help.

What a fun past few days! We have had two very nice articles written about Ouibache in the local paper and folks seem to really be getting behind us. We have all our paperwork submitted for the 501-c 3 and we met with our new attorney today. The board will meet in the next few weeks and we will have our first call out meeting soon after. We hope to finalize an actual date within the next week.

Things are really moving along. We received our 501-c 3 non-profit EIN and the paperwork should be here in a couple weeks. We have drafted our bylaws and we will be starting the budget process next week. Look for a Kickstarter campaign to begin soon. Our goal is to raise $7500 (more would be great). This will get us going and get all our administrative ducks in a row. Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned!

This has been a very busy week for the OMF. We are in the final stages of filing paperwork to get our 501-3 c non-profit status nailed down. We have an official mailing address now:
Ouibache Music Festival
PO Box 176

We will be staring a Kickstarter campaign in October 2017. This will help us get a little money in the bank so we can get to planning the festival for October 2018! Whatever you can do to help would be great.
If you have an idea for something you would like to see at your OMF, drop us a note and we will throw it into the mix.
