The Ithaca Festival Board invites members of the general public to our annual public meeting. The Ithaca Festival began in 1977 with a mission to “Celebrate the Artist in Everyone.” We invite the public to contribute their thoughts and ideas for future Ithaca Festivals and to meet our Board of Directors and Executive Director. The event is free and an open forum where we will discuss the 2022 festival, and tentative plans for the 2023 Festival. The Ithaca Festival thrives with input from our businesses and community members. Help us make the festival a success by contributing your thoughts and ideas. Please join us at 6:00 pm October 3rd in The Borg Warner Room at the Tompkins Public Library, 101 East Green Street. Refreshments will be served and all are welcome to attend.

The Ithaca Festival also actively seeks community-minded people who are interested in being a part of the magic that makes the festival happen. Our Festival Board is composed of a diverse group of community members who love the festival, our community, and want to celebrate it year after year. All are welcome to attend the public meeting to discuss how to become a part of our Board of Directors. Board membership is a crucial element to the success of the festival, come see what it’s all about.

The 2023 Ithaca Festival is slated for June 1-4, 2023.
