Support A Community Tradition

The Ann Arbor Summer Festival is a non-profit organization that relies on the generous support of contributors. The income generated from the sale of tickets and other earned revenue cannot cover the festival’s annual operating costs alone. Financial contributions from individuals sustain a spectacular array of artistic and public service programs, including admission-free concerts and movies at Top of the Park, special outdoor attractions, educational events, and other community engagement activities.
