Festival of the Hill grosses nearly $29K. Planning begins for 2023

The 2022 Festival on the Hill generated $17,776 in revenue (which included $4,400 in donations). In addition, the community groups with their own booth operations were able to raise another $11,068.

In 2018, before pandemic interruptions, cash donations reached $10,000; planners are hoping to reach that goal again in 2023.

Expenses this year came to $17,884, which included an investment in tents and exhibition equipment that can be used in future festivals. BHCA made $500 contributions to both the Samaritan Community and No Boundaries Coalition from festival proceeds.

Planning for the 2023 Festival on the Hill is underway with a working committee, made up so far, of Nathan Arnold, Jake Boone, Yoni Doron, Alexa Eckley, Doug Kelso, Chris Kingsley, Avendui Lacovara, Kristine Smets, Yulia Suslova, Lee Tawney, and Louie Wilder.

More than just an annual opportunity to generate funds, the annual Festival on the Hill provides a vehicle to celebrate the greater neighborhood. If you have an idea, want to volunteer, donate or become a sponsor contact festival@boltonhillmd.org.
