With an array of ticketed and free events, regional premieres, and Ann Arbor exclusives, we invite you to join us from June 13 through July 6 to experience an eclectic mix of music, dance, comedy, film, spoken word, street arts, and family entertainment.

Presenting over 140 events each season, we bring a unique combination of some of the best artists in the world alongside the experimental, the up-and-coming, and the astounding. They come from across the globe, and just down the street, to perform here at our city’s greatest party. It’s an unparalleled place for discovery of new arts and culture, and in my first season as executive director, I welcome you and thank you for taking part in another amazing season of the Ann Arbor Summer Festival.

A Community Tradition

Season 31

The Ann Arbor Summer Festival’s mission is to present a world-class celebration of arts and entertainment that enriches the cultural, economic, and social vitality of the region.

The Ann Arbor Summer Festival aspires to be a leading multi-arts festival and an enduring local treasure — a widely anticipated, interactive hub of creative and community energy.

The Ann Arbor Summer Festival is an exhilarating celebration of performing arts, outdoor entertainment, and community spirit. A boutique music and arts festival, the three-week gathering offers dozens of performances, activities, exhibitions, and screenings representative of the best in music, dance, comedy, film, circus and street arts, and family entertainment.

Established as an equal partnership between the City of Ann Arbor and the University of Michigan, the Ann Arbor Summer Festival presented its first full season in 1984. What began with a vision for a summer cultural event that would connect audiences with world-class artists, bring community together, and showcase the city and state as a major arts destination, now flourishes as one of the leading multi-arts festivals in the country.

Now entering our 31st season, the Ann Arbor Summer Festival produces two concurrent programs, one indoor and one outdoor, at various venues and spaces across the University of Michigan campus and in downtown Ann Arbor. The indoor Mainstage series includes ticketed performances of world-class music, dance, theater and comedy. The outdoor program, Top of the Park, is held along a beautiful campus green and offers admission-free concerts, movies under the stars, open-air spectacles and unique family attractions.

The Ann Arbor Summer Festival is one of the annual events that makes Ann Arbor such an incredibly special place in which to live and visit.

The Ann Arbor Summer Festival is embarking on an endowment-building initiative to help fund Top of the Park activities in perpetuity. The campaign is called Forever Summer, and the money raised will help support the festival’s innovative outdoor programs for generations to come.

Endowment gifts are to an organization what retirement funds are to an individual – they represent set-aside resources for the future. The festival will always have a need for annual gifts for operational purposes. However, endowment dollars can make
it possible to underwrite special programs and projects that might be impossible

to maintain otherwise. A strong endowment program provides financial depth and permits confident planning.

Endowment gifts can be given in remembrance of someone or in gratitude to the festival through a gift of cash, stock, a bequest, insurance or a life income gift. An endowment gift is a gift in perpetuity. It leaves a lasting impression of your personal values and beliefs for both the organization and for family and friends.

As an added incentive, thanks to a generous challenge gift from an anonymous donor, contributions to the new endowment campaign will be matched 2:1, up to $50,000, through 2019. This challenge is sure to have a transformative impact on the festival, and we are grateful for this opportunity.

Endowment Fund

This restricted permanent endowment provides continuity of purpose and supports existing and new initiatives, creates and sustains new resources for the festival, and stabilizes funding for the organization.

Rainy Day Fund

This unrestricted quasi-endowment provides flexibility to meet ever- changing, sometimes unexpected needs and seed funds to explore emerging opportunities. This fund will grow primarily through investment, unrestricted bequests, and annual operating surpluses.

For more information or to discuss a gift, please contact us at (734) 994-5999 ext. 202
