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.

Donate Today!

Please Volunteer

Ithaca Festival is a non-profit, which means that we rely heavily on the support of our community to keep the festival going. Please consider contributing to the festival this year by volunteering your time!

You can sign up to volunteer RIGHT HERE!

BONUS: All volunteers at the 2017 Ithaca Festival will be entered for a chance to win a 4 day pass to the Finger Lakes GrassRoots Festival of Music and Dance. Check out Culture Camp for opportunities to have lessons with local talent.
