Becoming a Forsythia Festival Donor

As the primary sponsor of the festival, the Cabbgetown Residents Association (CRA) co-ordinates all the details for bringing the festival to life. However, as a strictly volunteer-run organization, we cannot do it alone.

Stout Irish Pub sponsors our beer tent: How can you get involved?

Simply put, we need you and we think that you need us. We see the relationship between the residents of Cabbagetown and the businesses who provide services in our community as one of co-dependency. We see your offer of support as an important piece in establishing this relationship. Donating to the Forsythia Festival is a worthwhile advertising investment and a great way to get your business recognized in the community.

If you have customers from Cabbagetown, why donating is valuable to you

The CRA does great work in the community, all on a volunteer basis. By supporting the Forsythia Festival, you will be helping us achieve our commitment to strengthening community engagement and improving the well-being of all residents.

All funds received in excess of our operating costs for the festival go toward the CRA Long-Term Community Project Portfolio. The goal of this portfolio is to develop long-term project plans to improve the Cabbagetown neighbourhood. For instance, in 2018, we pledged funding to Sprucecourt P.S. for a garden project.

How to donate

If you would like to make a donation, please contact the Cabbagetown Residents Association at

There are three categories of support to choose from:
Gold Sponsor: $500+
Silver Sponsor: $200-$499
Bronze Sponsor: $50-$199

The donor category you choose will determine how your business is profiled relative to the other Cabbagetown businesses. Cash or cheque donations are gratefully accepted. Please make cheques payable to the Cabbagetown Residents Association. We also have gift-in-kind partners that defray the expenses of mounting the festival.

Thank you for your consideration and we hope you will decide to donate to this long-standing community event. The Forsythia Festival would not be possible without your generous support!
