Annual Community “Give Back” Program

Festivals Fredonia is dedicated to supporting the local community, area merchants, artists, musicians and various organizations.

As part of our mission we try to give back to the community by not only providing quality entertainment and festival venues for both vendors and festival goers, but by making an annual donation to a local not-for-profit organization.

Giving back is our way of saying thank you to a community that over the years has shown such great support for our organization and the events we produce. It is our hope to be able to continue to give back to our community annually and that we can inspire others to do the same.

Please join us each year at the Miracle on Main Street Festival in December, during the official Tree Lighting Ceremony that takes place in Barker Commons Park, as we present a check to a deserving local not-for-profit organization/business chosen by the Festivals Fredonia Board of Directors.
