The Ithaca Youth Council Ambassadors would like to invite all the teens in town to the YEStival!

On March 17th, come join us for live music, creative arts, yard games, a video game tournament and community building.

The Gallery, Rashida Sawyer Bakery, Press Cafe and other local businesses will be offering special discounts for teens when Press Bay Alley is transformed into a teen-centered oasis.

Whether you’re into music, art, sports, or technology, there’s something for everyone at the YEStival. So, come on down and have a blast with other teens and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Who are the Youth Council Ambassadors?

The Ithaca Youth Council Ambassadors are a self-directed group of teens with a mission to listen and speak for youth in Tompkins County. The Ambassadors strive to raise awareness in the Ithaca community about issues that are unique to teens, and they work together to develop resources and find solutions.
