Friends of the FESTIVAL

Friends of the Festival is a unique way of becoming more involved in the charitable community.  As a Friend, you join our family of donors affording you distinctive benefits and privileges.

It’s no wonder that for almost half a century  Festival in the Park has become one of the City’s most beloved traditions, a tradition that depends on the generosity of those who understand the importance of supporting the arts in our area.

Festival in the Park is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We rely on friends like you to keep the Festival going each year. Our festival is always free and so our friends’ donations are important to us.
