We recognize that the cost of Frankie 100 is high and, unfortunately, might not be affordable for many people. The organizing team for Frankie 100 is both thrilled to put on an event of this magnitude in New York City, but also regret the excessive costs related to venues and event production in Manhattan.

Production costs for a festival of this size are very high. New York is one of the most expensive cities in the world to put on a large scale event. But New York City is where Frankie lived and danced for nearly his entire life, and where lindy hop was born.

We feel strongly that if there were ever a time to do it right, it’s now, in honor of the one man who deserves it, Mr. Frankie Manning. We are committed to putting on a world class event in Frankie’s honour, in the place that he called home.

We are grateful to the generosity of our extensive Staff and Cast of Guests, all of whom are donating their time and talents to help make this event happen. Because of the high cost of production, no Lindy Hoppers are actually being paid to work on this event. The only paid artists of any kind at Frankie 100 will be the musicians — all other human resources have been donated. So in considering what looks like a hefty price tag of US $70 per day in New York City, please remember that this is all for Frankie and his legacy. We’re sure that you’ll find it to be money well spent.
