Preparing for Festival

Festival 2024 in Minneapolis is right around the corner!
On this page you'll find tools to help prepare your chorus for Festival. These include to-do lists, information about Festival, and promotional tools to help get your chorus excited for summer 2024.

By the Numbers
GALA Choruses Festival celebrates more than 15,000 singers representing nearly 200 LGBTQ* choruses in North America and beyond. Festival 2024 choirs will perform at world-class venues in downtown Minneapolis including the Orchestra Hall Stage, the Minneapolis Convention Center Stage and Ensemble Stage, and Central Lutheran Stage. Festival 2016 in Denver, CO, gathered more than 6000 singers in-person and more than 14,000 unique viewers online. We expect even more folks to join us both in-person and online for Festival 2024.
