Host an artist for the Wintergreen Summer Music Festival & Academy
One of the great traditions of the Wintergreen Summer Music Festival is how our entire community makes the event happen. Providing housing for the musicians and artists is perhaps the best example. You are invited to be a part of this great tradition during our 2016 season.
Some of our musicians will be here for the entire 2016 Festival, July 6th – August 7th, while others will be here only for a few days or a long weekend.
Many of our host families have generously provided housing for several Festivals. This speaks to the positive experience that this opportunity has to offer and the lasting friendships that develop.
There are benefits to hosting these talented and interesting people. When you provide housing for a musician, Wintergreen Performing Arts will provide two free tickets to a Festival performance. We will also have your home professionally cleaned following the departure of our musicians. A highlight during the Festival is a picnic celebration by Wintergreen Performing Arts for host families and musicians. In addition, there may be tax benefits for homeowners who donate the use of their homes.
What are we looking for? We are seeking fully-furnished homes or condominiums with one to two bedrooms, a bathroom, and perhaps a little refrigerator space. We need three or four larger homes, accommodating several people. These homes may host our fellowship quartet or could be used for some of our older Academy students. Many homeowners provide housing for musicians for the duration of the Festival. Others may host only one to two weeks or just a weekend. All are appreciated and needed.
Becoming a Festival host is a wonderful opportunity to support Wintergreen Performing Arts and make
connections with all of our musicians and other Festival enthusiasts.

Thank you for considering being a host. It's one of the most important, unique, and fun parts of the Wintergreen Summer Music Festival and Academy.
