The Calgary Flamenco Festival Needs Your Support!

An annual festival, just in its 3rd year, the festival is the flamenco event of the year in Calgary. Unique and multi-faceted, The Flamenco festival is both a dance and music festival. Artists from across Canada, from as far as Nova Scotia and Spain join to create and collaborate and this year features the breathtaking dancer from Madrid, Olga Pericet.

We bring in the very best of Flamenco and we need your help to make it happen!

What We Need & What You Get

We are asking for $8,000 to defray the extensive cost of bringing in our 6 international performers for the Festival. A flight alone from Madrid costs $1,500.

  • We encourage you to help by SPONSORING AN ARTIST. $1,500 gets you linked to a specific artist as their sponsor, you will be specifically thanked in the Festival programs.

To thank you for your contribution we are offering:

Complimentary tickets, backstage passes, signed postcards, downloadable exclusive images, Special live recordings, Cd's, Flamenco Society memberships and behind the scenes activities with the artists. As well we thank you with flamenco classes, gift certificates, private concerts and more  - all redeemable within a year of the Festival.
