Sponsors, Volunteers and the Community

Read by the Sea runs on volunteer power and through the gracious funding and sponsorship of many. The festival depends largely on local suppliers and services, and on the tremendous support from the village of River John and surrounding area. We encourage our audience to patronize local businesses.
