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.

To see the benefits associated with each giving level, visit our Membership Benefits page.

Donor Recognition

We have a number of ways that we recognize our generous donors of all levels. For details about the different recognition levels, please click here.


Tax information: Gifts to the Ann Arbor Summer Festival are tax deductible less the market value of any goods or services you receive as part of your donation. The value of these benefits can be found on our website under Support/Giving Levels.

Donor recognition is provided for gifts of $25 or more during the festival season following the close of the calendar year in which your gift was made. For example, gifts received between 1/1/2018 and 12/31/2018 are recognized in the 2019 program guide. Due to space constraints, only gifts of $100 or more are recognized in print. Member benefits are applied toward the following season after the date of your gift.

Pre-sale access does not guarantee a ticket or a specific seat. Due to the popularity of select shows, tickets may be limited or may sell out quickly. Tickets are sold to members on a first-come, first-serve basis. After the member sale period ends, unsold premium seats will be released for sale to the general public.
