The Portsmouth Maritime Folk Festival is extremely pleased to announce
that reports of our demise were somewhat exaggerated.  A rushing wave of
support from the maritime music community buoyed a number of volunteers
to step up, including most of the new board.  There WILL be a Festival
in 2020, and we are working on the details now.

When we thought the Festival was ending, we cut back on fundraising…
so now we need to build up our reserves to ensure a stable long-term future.

The outgoing president and the new board have combined to offer
a matching donation challenge of $2,700.  So make your year-end tax
deductible gift now, and the donation will be DOUBLED to help keep PMFF
sailing strongly into the future.

If you missed the bucket-shaking volunteers at this year’s festival, here’s your chance to make up.  Visit, and select Donate at the top, or go straight to and make a donation.

Fair winds,
the whole PMFF family
