Save the Ithaca Festival!

To achieve these goals, we are turning to the community. If you enjoy this early celebration of summertime, participate in or look forward to the annual Festival Parade, and believe that supporting local artists of all genres and ages is important, then we encourage you to help us sustain our Festival. Whether you can afford $5 or $25 or $100 or some amount even more generous, your donation will ensure the future of the Ithaca Festival and Parade. Our goal is to raise $30,000 by the end of the year.
