Summer Festival Tuition & Fees

UPDATE (April 9, 2020): At Fredonia, the health and safety of our faculty, staff, campers, and families is our highest priority. Based on our current situation and with great disappointment, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Summer Music Festival. We are discussing possible alternatives for online offerings and musical experiences, and will provide more details here in the weeks to come. Stay home, stay safe! We are excited to see you next summer!

The Fredonia Summer Music Festival is an exceptional value. We intentionally keep our tuition as low as possible to make this outstanding musical experience available to everyone. Tuition includes a Festival t-shirt and group photo.
