Host an Artist for the Wintergreen Music Festival
One of the great traditions of the Wintergreen 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 2019 season.
Some of our musicians will be here for the entire 2019 Festival, July 8-August 4, while others will be here only for a few days or a long weekend.
Year after year, many of our host families generously provide housing for our Festival artists. This speaks to the positive experience that this opportunity has to offer and the lasting friendships that develop.
There are so many unique benefits to hosting a Wintergreen musician. When you provide housing for a musician, Wintergreen Music will provide two free tickets to a Mix, Mingle & Music concert of your choice (excludes Bold Rock concerts). We also offer to 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 Music and make connections with all of our musicians and other Festival enthusiasts.
If you are interested in becoming a host or have questions, please contact Kendra Siebert, Office & Housing Coordinator at email@example.com or fill out the form on this page.
Thank you for considering being a host. It's one of the most important, unique, and fun parts of the Wintergreen Music Festival and Academy.
