Fans of the Dream Café are invited to another co-op planning meeting on June 10.
Organizers say there has been a lot happening in the background over the month since the last meeting, including planning for another Dream Festival next year in light of the success of the first event.
Dream Festival 2016 is now being planned according to organizers, who say the venue is booked and performers are being contacted. Future Dream Festivals will be owned and operated by the Dream Café Co-op, thanks to an arrangement between Dream Café owner Pierre Couture and the originating members of the co-op where the co-op will acquire the festival by paying a lifetime royalty to Couture of 30 per cent of the profits from the festival. In addition, Couture will be hired as the promoter of the Festival for as long as he is able to work.
Co-op members will get first crack at Dream Festival tickets and ticket discounts at the café.
From the date of incorporation of the co-op to the end of 2015 and throughout 2016, co-op members will receive a 25 per cent discount off of their tickets for entertainment at the Dream Café.
Since the festival the organizers have been working hard to complete the fundraising for the Dream Café Co-op. Two information meetings for new and current participants are scheduled for June 10 at 7 p.m. and June 14 at 2:30 p.m. in the Dream Café.
“With one other fundraising initiative underway we believe the end is in sight but that means we need to be sure we have all of the help possible to make sure it happens,” said co-op organizers in a release.
