What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


This is for those who've enjoyed this years' events who'd like to donate to help the festival to bounce back bigger and better in 2023.

Slaithwaite Moonraking Festival has been running for over 30 years - a biennial community event celebrating the local legend of Moonraking with music, stories and lanterns.

The Moonshine Festival of Light in February 2021 got more people involved than ever before during the lockdown of the coronavirus pandemic. Neighbours around the village created a spectacular alfresco art gallery of illuminated picture windows. This brought light and laughter to this West Yorkshire village. The village featured on BBC News and got lots of positive press for the area.

I've never felt so included in the community and it's been great getting to know more of our neighbours. Can we do it again? Sarah, Street Ambassador

Funding is uncertain for the festival in the years ahead - help the Festival to fundraise and build momentum from the 2021 success! All donations are most gratefully received!!!
