Downtown Sounds seeks crowd funders, business sponsors

The Downtown Bellingham Partnership is running a crowd funding campaign to support the annual Downtown Sounds summer concert series, which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year.

Five consecutive weekly shows are scheduled to begin on July 9. Concerts will be held on Wednesday evenings in downtown Bellingham.

The partnership is seeking financial support to help pay for the concert’s rising production costs. Downtown Sounds has consistently grown over the past decade and generally attracts thousands of weekly attendees.

Contributions will be accepted until July 9. The partnership’s crowd funding goal is $10,000.

Lindsey Payne, events manager of the Downtown Bellingham Partnership, said business sponsorships for the concert series are also still available, including the title sponsor ($5,000), four stage sponsor spots ($1,500 for each show), and a talent sponsor (covering shows’ band fees).
