If you are really a pro at

If you are really a pro at putting the staging on for an event like this, then you would not be asking why the cost of admission.

Promotions cost money, even if the labor is free.
The event itself doesn't go on for free. There may be cost associated with the use of the venue itself. Insurance coverage for multi cultural and multi aged crowds has to be acquired, and it isn't cheap. If the municipality requires that officers be there on duty, that too has to be covered. Utilities have to be paid for. Clean up has to be paid for.
The list of expenses even for an event with many volunteers is a long, long list.

Being contracted to erect staging, sound, and lights, and then packing it up at the end of the night is a lot different than actually producing and promoting an event. Now you know.
